nMHIS COMPANY has been formed to provide an independent Fish Exchange for London. The 
vast and ever-increasing population of the Metropolis has long since proved the insufficiency 
of Billingsgate. The public demand a central building for supplying and delivering Fish, a most 
important article of diet alike a necessity and a luxury at a minimum cost. 

The Company will be their own salesmen for all fish directly consigned to them, in accordance 
with the recommendation of the Committee of the Corporation appointed to inquire into the subject 
of the Fish Supply. This will be a reliable test of the actual wholesale price. 

On the lower floors of the Exchange'," Cold " or Refrigerating Rooms will be constructed, in 
which Fish not required for immediate sale may be kept without deterioration. 

The Directors propose to make arrangements with the London Chatham and Dover Railway 
to run fish trucks direct into the Fish Exchange from their new line, which will be on the same 
level as the Upper Exchange, and also with the District Railway, thus allowing the trade, whose 
business is contiguous to this great circle of communication, to attend the Exchange at all reasonable 
hours and convey their purchases direct to their places of business, avoiding the delay of driving 
through London. 

The importance and completeness of the site, and of the arrangements for the purpose of this 
undertaking, will be obvious on reference to plans, which may be seen at the Offices of the Ctirn- 
pany. A considerable area, both on the land side and on the river, is ready to be handed over to 
the Company. It is the intention of the Directors to have this Exchange free and open, thoroughly 
independent of any so-called " ring." 

Copies of the Agreements, Memorandum and Articles of Association may be seen, and 
Prospectuses with full particulars, Plans, reprints of Opinions of the Press, and every informatioi) 
may be obtained, on application to the Secretary at the Offices of the Company.

FISHING and Fishermen are subjects which peculiarly commend themselves to 
those who are interested rather in the foundations than in the surface of 
society, for they are by their very nature unobtrusive and remote from view. 
No huge chimneys poison the air as a necessary accompaniment to their 
labours ; no great cities rise up to contain their manufactures ; no gigantic 
hoardings advertise their importance. Fishermen do not meet us at every 
turn like agricultural labourers in the country, or the tradesmen and mechanics 
in the cities ; nor, except in the presence of a shop here and there, does their 
occupation leave the slightest perceptible trace in a provincial or a metro- 
politan town. As for the fish themselves, they not unnaturally prefer the 
quiet depths of the ocean to the most luxurious slab of a fishmonger's shop, 
or the most delicate attentions of a west-end cook. Everything connected 
with the industry is, in fact, almost wholly concealed from the view of those 
not directly employed in carrying it on. Its principal scene of maintenance 
is on the desolate ocean, out of sight for the most part, not merely of the 
dwellers upon the shore, but even of the passing ships which traverse the 
watery wastes. The towns and villages which its pursuers inhabit are 
frequented by few except the masters and the workmen of the craft ; the 
markets are rare, and their surroundings by no means inviting ; and even the 
shops receive but passing notice or recognition. To many persons all that 
represents the fisherman's craft consists of a single dish in the course of an 
elaborate dinner ; and not many years have elapsed since the habitual use of 
fish, except on festive occasions, was considered in a middle-class household as 
a symptom of extravagance rather than of thrift. And yet how vast an 
interest is overlooked by so superficial a view will be evident upon very slight 
reflection. For in fact neither hunting, nor shooting, nor agriculture itself, 
nor any mode whatsoever of obtaining the necessaries of existence for the 
mouths which clamour for them can vie with this ancient and wide-spread 
industry. Fishing, so far as the prime object of all labour, the sustentation 
of human life, is concerned, is an occupation which claims one entire element 
of the terraqueous globe for its undisputed province. There is scarcely a 
country throughout the world, from Greenland to Carpentaria, and ..from 
America to Japan, to the shores of which the fishing-boat is a stranger. Nor 
does this statement by any means exhaust the whole case. Not in the sea 
alone can this interesting and remunerative occupation be pursued with 
advantage, for lakes and rivers in every land teem with superabundant 
resources prodigal of food and wealth. However much therefore the increase 
and multiplicity of devices for the capture of fish may have escaped general 
notice, there can be little wonder that they should have attracted the 
attention of such as give their minds to the furtherance of the welfare of their 
countrymen, and more particularly to the development of such resources and 

xxxiv Introduction. 

industries as may most conduce to the support of a constantly increasing 

Suggestions for the furtherance of these interests have been made in Blue 
Books over and over again, as in the endeavours to obtain the establishment of 
a Government vessel for the instruction and assistance of fishermen, repeatedly 
made by the late Mr. Frank Buckland ; to whose memory no monument could 
be erected either more in accordance with his own desire, or more worthy of 
the debt of gratitude owed to him by the nation, than such an institution. 
But Blue Books are easily read, and still more easily left unread, and nothing 
speaks so forcibly in behalf of a reform as a practical example of its utility 
made patent to the eyes of all men. It is in carrying out such objects as 
these that Exhibitions, National and International, discharge their most dis- 
tinctive and salutary functions. They collect in a single focus the scattered 
rays which illuminate the recesses of the body politic; they present in a 
visible and striking form those features of our industrial and social life which 
almost of necessity escape common observation, and so to speak, they place 
beneath a hive of glass the operations and domestic habits of our human bees. 

Few articles connected with Fishing were displayed at the World's Fair of 
1851 ; and such as there were came almost entirely from the United Kingdom. 
Angling, in fact, was but little known or appreciated in foreign parts, and 
there was probably no other country where the manufacturers of tackle con- 
stituted in themselves a distinct trade. Twenty-five British Exhibitors 
contributed such sportsman's gear as rods, lines, artificial flies, and baits ; 
while, with the exception of some apparatus for float-fishing emanating from 
France, no foreign manufacturer sent an exhibit illustrative of fishing, either 
in salt or fresh water. The model of a smack, however, fitted with auxiliary 
screw propeller attracted general notice, as the principle had not been pre- 
viously applied to this class of vessel. Nor were matters performed on a 
much larger scale when, eleven years later, a second opportunity was afforded 
in our metropolis, though some ingenious machinery was shown for the manu- 
facture of nets, together with a fine assortment of tackle, and models of vessels 
for service at home and abroad. In 1867 the Imperial Commissioners at Paris 
offered a reward for co-operating societies in connection with the Exposition, 
and amongst the successful competitors was the Free Fisheries Society of 
Whitstable, incorporated in 1793, and established as a ^working fishery guild 
long before. At Vienna in 1873 models of Swedish and Norwegian fisheries 
were displayed, and at Philadelphia three years later was presented a capital 
machine, invented by Messrs. Baron, and subsequently improved by Poecqueur, 
for making nets. Another most noticeable feature in Philadelphia was a 
complete collection of Models, in papier mache, of the varied and valuable 
Marine Fauna, of North America. 

Like all vigorous and well-conceived ideas, the notion of a Great Inter- 
national collection of works of industry like the World's Fair of 1851, gave 
birth to similar enterprises of a more limited and partial scope. Beneath the 
wonderful influence exercised by the first and most beautiful of them all, local 
and special exhibitions grew up almost from year to year for all sorts of 
objects and in all sorts of places. In these specialities Cork led the way in 



1852 with a collection of Irish Arts and Manufactures, and in the following 
year New York, New Brunswick, and Madras gave illustration of their native 
productions. Munich and Madrid, Christiania and Brussels, Berne, Sardinia, 
Hanover and St. Petersburg, promptly took up the cue thus given. Within 
the last thirty years scarcely any land has been without the advantages 
derived from a public display illustrative of national life. There have been 
Exhibitions from Thurso to Ballarat, and from Paris to Nagasaki. There have 
been Exhibitions of particular industries, Exhibitions of Arts, Exhibitions of 
Treasures, Exhibitions of the Apparatus of Labour, Exhibitions of the Ap- 
paratus of Science, Exhibitions of Corn, of Wine, and of Needlework. The 
Dairies of Europe have vied with each other at Hamburg ; Casques and 
Bronzes have met in assembly at Kioto ; even the Bees have had their own 
Exhibition in London, and the very Fungi have held a Congress all to them- 
selves at Aberdeen. 

At last, fourteen years from the commencement of this magnificent series 
of industrial, art, and scientific triumphs, Fishing and Fisheries asserted 
their claim to a special display. Boulogne, with its semi-aquatic inhabitants 
and its frequent memorials of those who have perished in the waters, was the 
first to open its doors, though both Arcachon and Havre followed its example 
at a subsequent period. Especial prominence must be given to the important 
Maritime Exposition held at the former of these two last-mentioned towns ; 
an enterprise which resulted as we trust will be one of the results of our 
own Exhibition in a great development and improvement of pisciculture. 
The Hague also was the scene of a similar collection in 1867, as was Naples 
in 1871. But the International Fisheries Exhibition held at Berlin in 1880 
eclipsed all others in extent and variety. Nine great divisions were not more 
than sufficient for the multiplicity of the ol ' 3cts collected, which ranged from 
the specimens of corals and oysters, and from dried, salted, and smoked pre- 
parations, to documents and emblems, and seals, and all the multifarious 
statistics bearing upon the history of the fishing ndustry. 

It would be foreign to our purpose to dwell upon the particular specimens 
exhibited at Berlin, yet one class of objects was of so striking a character as 
to give an excellent example of the incidental illustrations of nature which 
are, as it were, the perquisites and rewards of those who endure the labours of 
such multifarious tasks as are involved in the establishment of an International 
Exhibition. The magnificent collection of sea- fowl was in itself found worthy 
of prolonged attention. There were the Falconidse, the Fagins of aquatic 
fowl, who get their prey through the medium of less subtle but more active 
birds ; the PandionidaB, haunters of salt and fresh water alike, but lovers in 
particular of the rocky islands in the Tuscan sea ; the ArdeidoB (the herons), 
to which the Egretta Alba of Venice belongs; the Phoenicopteridse (tlie 
flamingoes), which pass in flights year by year over the Sardinian chores; the 
Procellaridse (the petrels), including that unique bird the Oceanides Wilsoni, 
whereof a single specimen alone in the world is preserved in the Museum of 
Cagliari; and with them were many other different kinds of fowl which 
follow the human fashion of feeding upon the inhabitants of the waters. 
From Germany this admirable and most politic conception parsed over into 



England. We are indebted to Norwich, the capital of the county distinguished 
for its fishing enterprise from time] immemorial, for first localising it within 
these islands. The germ of the idea was due to the Yare Preservation and 
Angling Society, and more specifically to one of its most distinguished 
members, Mr. Howard Taylor. At the Annual Meeting of this Association in 
1879, Mr. Taylor suggested the institution of a Fish Museum at Norwich ; 
while, at the same time, an Act was passed for the protection and preservation 
of fish in relation to the county through the instrumentality of the same 
Society. From the legislation arising out of this movement sprang the 
important Society for the Acclimatization of Fish; and when the project 
of a museum was found difficult of execution, their Secretary, Mr. Oldham 
Chambers, conceived the happy notion of holding a Fisheries Exhibition 
in the county capital a proposition warmly accepted and endorsed by their 
President, Mr. Birkbeck, the Member for the Northern Division of the county. 
A small and energetic Executive soon threw themselves into the work, and 
just as the project of a Museum had been superseded by that of an Exhibition, 
so now the local character of the institution gradually widened into a 
national undertaking. Several public bodies quickly recognised the value of 
the design, and assistance flowed in from many quarters. A handsome donation 
was voted for the purpose by the Corporation of London, and that ancient 
City guild, the Fishmongers' Company, then as now lent their powerful 

Government recognition was also obtained, chiefly through the agency of 
Mr. Birkbeck, and an official sanction was procured for holding the Exhibition 
at Norwich, and for granting medals and diplomas of merit. From the 
moment of its inception, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh took 
a lively interest in furthering the project, and its happy execution was in no 
small degree owing to the assistance afforded by their Koyal Highnesses. 

The success attained at Norwich at once put in motion the enterprise of our 
Northern neighbours. At the instance of the Highland and Agricultural 
Society, Mr- Menzies paid a visit to the Norwich Exhibition, and his report 
was so favourable that the Scottish Society resolved upon following suit in 
the succeeding year. Amongst the objects especially noticed at Edinburgh 
was the Swedish collection of fish and fish-derived products, such as isinglass 
and gelatine. One young lady in particular exhibited a most ingenious and 
beautiful set of brooches and ornaments made entirely of fish-scales. Much 
interest also was felt in the exhibits contributed by Professor Nordenskjold, 
of the fishing-tackle used by the tribes frequenting the borders of the Arctic 
Ocean, and by the .Esquimaux of the Port of Cloimu. Some valuable con- 
tributions to our knowledge upon points connected with these matters were 
obtained in the essays presented by various experienced writers, notably in 
that contributed by Mr. George Sim upon the " Natural History of the 
Herring," in an account of the " Harbour Accommodation of Scotland," given 
by Mr. Young, Inspector of Salmon Fisheries, and in a disquisition upon the 
different methods of Oyster Culture. 

Meanwhile a movement was set on foot again under the auspices of 
Mr. Birkbeck, for repeating, upon a grander scale in London, the experiment

so admirably initiated at Norwich. A very influential meeting, under the 
presidency of the Marquis of Exeter, was held in the month of July 1881, at 
the Hall of the Fishmongers' Company, when resolutions were adopted to tho 
effect : That it was desirable to hold a Grand International Fisheries Exhibi- 
tion in London in the year 1883 ; that a communication should be addressed 
to the Members of Her Majesty's Government, informing them of the proposal, 
and requesting their kind co-operation ; that a Committee should be requested 
to draw up, at the termination of the Exhibition, a Eeport on the Fisheries of 
the British Empire and the best method of improving them ; and that cor- 
responding Committees should be formed round the coast. The Chairmanship 
of the Executive Committee was accepted by Mr. Birkbeck, and a Committee 
of twelve was formed representing the various fishery interests of the United 
Kingdom. Canada gave the services of Sir Alexander Gait ; and the Marquis 
of Hamilton, upon whom, in conjunction with Mr. Birkbeck, the onus of the 
responsibility and the stress of the laborious daily executive work have fallen, 
was added to represent Ireland ; while the Aquarium Department was placed 
under the management of Sir James Gibson Maitland ; and the construction 
of the building was confided to the care of General Scott, whose recent decease 
is so greatly mourned at South Kensington. The buildings for the Exhibition, 
admirably adapted as they are for their respective uses, bear no slight 
testimony, were any needed, to General Scott's exceptional skill in architectural 
construction. Nor at the inauguration of this Great International enterprise 
will his colleagues fail to remember the high scientific attainments the 
thoroughness of purpose and the endearing sweetness of disposition of him 
whose labours are ended. 

A second important meeting was held at Willis's Rooms in February 1882, 
when the Duke of Richmond and Gordon read the Report of the Committee, 
and their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh 
expressed a strong interest in the undertaking. The support of Royalty was 
again readily granted for the scheme, Her Majesty graciously consenting to be 
Patron, and the Prince of Wales becoming President, while the Duke of 
Edinburgh, the Duke of Connaught, the Duke of Albany, and the Duke of 
Cambridge, accepted the position of Vice-Presidents, and the Duke of Richmond 
and Gordon that of Chairman of the General Committee. Of this Committee 
the Prime Minister and Lord Granville are members, together with most of 
the Ministers of the present and late Administration. Every facility also was 
afforded by the various departments of the Government for forwarding the 
business of the Exhibition. Various means have been adopted to spread 
among the public a knowledge of the subject connected with this industry. 
Prizes are offered for the best exhibits as well as for the best essays upon 
selected and appropriate topics; Authorities of distinction have been invited 
to compile a series of popular Shilling 1 (andbooks upon subjects with which 
they were specially acquainted, and Conferences are arranged to be held 
during the continuance of the Exhibition for the discussion of important 
questions, the first of which will be held on the 12th of June, when a paper 
contributed by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh will bo read. 
Nor is the practical side of the matter neglected. A fish market has been.

established within the precincts of the building, to which the great salesmen 
of our principal ports will send their wares direct. Arrangements, too, have 
been made for the supply of cheap fish dinners, under the able and experienced 
direction of Mrs. Clarke, the Lady Superintendent of the National School of 
Cookery, while lectures upon the treatment of fish will be given daily by an 
experienced instructress. 

The sentiments animating the promoters will best be illustrated by certain 
words spoken by the Prince of Wales at the inaugural banquet at Norwich. 
" It is particularly gratifying," said His Eoyal Highness, " to see that at last 
an interest is being taken not only in our fisheries, but in our fishermen, 
whose lives are so frequently exposed to risk through the severity of weather 
and the dangerous character .of the Eastern coast. Among a very interesting 
display of specimens, I especially observed the apparatus for saving life, and 
a variety of models of life-boats, which cannot fail to bring before the public 
generally their duty in regard to the protection of the fishing interests of our 
country. Whilst thinking over the probable results that may attend this 
Exhibition, I could not fail to reflect upon the labour it has cost more minds 
than one ; and I do trust, having regard to the importance of our national 
fishing interest, and the value of our fishermen's lives, that a sort of National 
Society may be instituted which will maintain those who are unfortunately in 
want, and help to assuage the grief and misery of the widows and orphans of 
those who perish at sea. I believe it is only necessary to throw out the hint 
to see established in this country a National Fishermen's Aid Society, which 
shall command the support not only of those living upon the line of our 
fishing coast here, but of all concerned in fishery throughout our dominions." 

In these pregnant sentences, well befitting the Heir oi (he British Crown, 
are contained the whole force and design of the great Fisheries Exhibition, 
not merely as presented at Norwich, but as developed in its International form 
in the present Exhibition at South Kensington. To this end the Exhibits, the 
Prizes, the Conferences, the Handbooks, the Market, the Cookery, the Dinners, 
the Lectures, are all, in a systematic and carefully elaborated plan, har- 
moniously directed. It is much to defend the natural wealth of our rivers and 
seas from the rapacity of greed and the recklessness of pollution ; to provide 
improved harbour accommodation, and greater facilities for transport and com 
merce ; to render the meals of the million more palatable, more wholesome, 
and, at the same time, more economical. But all these things sink into 
insignificance when compared with the safe-guarding of our fishermen's lives 
and the improvement of our fishermen's homes. These are objects in which 
all nations can cordially co-operate because all mankind is interested in the 
result; and in noway can our island kingdom more gracefully or beneficially 
exercise the historic preeminence conceded to her upon the seas than by 
promoting these interests in connection with such an enterprise as that of the 
International Fisheries Exhibition.

DAVEY, PAXMAN, & CO., Engineers, Colchester. The supply of 
engine and boiler power necessary for working the vast system of electric lighting throughout 
the whole area of the Exhibition has been provided by Messrs. Davey, Paxman & Co., 
Colchester, to whom the Committee, taking into consideration the immense extent of the 
buildings, and the enormous amount of horse-power required, desire to express their especial 
indebtedness. The engines, which are three in number, are of singularly beautiful construction, 
and their power is greater than that of any display of electric lighting which has yet taken 
place. The principal of these engines is the largest which has yet been applied to the pur- 
poses of electric lighting. It is a high pressure horizontal engine with two cylinders capable 
of indicating 350 horse -power, the pressure being 100 pounds steam. It is provided with 
Paxton's Patent Automatic Cut-oifGear worked from the governors, also two fly-wheels 12 feet 
in diameter turned in the face, each made to take a 15-inch belt. The boilers for supplying 
steam to this engine are of locomotive type and of large size. In addition to this engine, 
Messrs. Davey Paxman & Co. also supply a Double Cylinder Semi-fixed Engine and Boiler 
capable of indicating 90 horse-power, together with four other engines, one of which will be a 
compound capable of indicating considerably over 200 horse-power. The vast amount of water 
required to supply the boilers, which generate steam for the engines, can best be realised when 
the fact is stated that the Committee have been compelled to lay down a separate 1-in. main, 
with a service of upwards of 100 pounds per square inch. Thus, altogether about 1000 horse- 
power will be required for lighting the many thousands oT electric lamps with which the build- 
ings of the Exhibition will be illuminated, and the Committee gladly avail themselves of this 
opportunity to express their sense of the good fortune they have experienced in securing a 
most interesting exhibit, and also of obtaining, on merely nominal terms, so valuable and costly 
an assistance towards the success of the Exhibition.

UNDEB this head is included everything immediately relating to and connected with the actual 
working of all kinds of fishing. The class has been naturally and conveniently divided into 
two sections sea fishing and freshwater fishing ; and it ia to the more important section of 
sea fishing that attention will first be directed. 

The wide importance of the sea fisheries will be perhaps better understood when the 
variety of objects now brought together before the public have been examined, and it is 
observed how many trades must be kept at work, and how much knowledge in various forms 
is required to provide the fisherman with the apparently simple means of carrying on his 
daily occupation of catching fish. The demand for sea fish is constantly increasing. This 
naturally leads to greater enterprise among the fishermen; and capital, in the majority of 
cases the accumulated savings from years of hard work at the fisheries, is invested in additional 
boats and gear for the further development of an industry which, laborious as it is, yet rarely 
fails to bring a more or less profitable return to all who are concerned in it. The special 
increase of fishing during recent years has been, however, in the deep sea, and nothing has 
been more remarkable in this respect than the rapid growth of beam-trawling, especially in 
the North Sea, where a great extent of suitable ground is always available. It is from this 
vast field and by the method of fishing known as "beam-trawling" that the London and 
country markets are mainly supplied with turbot, brill, and soles among "prime" fish, and 
thousands of tons of plaice, haddock, and other common fish are obtained and distributed 
at low prices among the poorer classes throughout the country. The peculiar construction of 
the beam-trawl will well repay examination, and some idea will be obtained of the manner in 
which such large numbers of fish are taken whilst the net is being silently towed over the 
ground, entirely out of sight of the fishermen. 

Second only in importance to the trawl is the drift-net, the method by which mackerel, 
herrings, and pilchards are principally captured. In this case we have nets which are in general 
use all round our coasts, and employed at long as well as at moderate distances from the 
land. As their name implies, " drift-nets " require plenty of room, for they are carried 
wherever the tide may drift them during the few hours they are left in the water ; and their 
simple character will be readily understood from the numerous specimens exhibited, differing 
but little in general appearance except in the size of the mesh, which is adapted to the kind 
of fish intended to be taken. Few people who are not fishermen have any idea of the hundreds 
or even thousands of miles of net which almost nightly in the regular fishing seasons float like 
long walls or barriers in the sea to intercept and mesh the shoals of fish as they gradually . 
draw in towards the coast. The drift fisheries are altogether a very important industry, both 
to ourselves and those countries bordering on the North Sea and the Channel, and in 
Scotland the drift herring fishery is looked forward to as the most valuable harvest. 
Besides the nets already mentioned, many other varieties will be found abundantly represen- 
ted ; among them the gigantic funnel-shaped stow-net, by which thousands of tons of sprats 
are caught every winter at the mouth of the Thames and other places on the south coast of 
England and the sean, seine, or sweep-not (the ancient Sagena] the oldest form of net of which

we have any distinct record. More universal in its use than nets, and of particular importance 
for the capture of certain kinds of fish, line fishing must always possess a great deal of interest. 
It represents probably the earliest method of fishing, and fish hooks of some description, 
and often of the roughest kind, have been found in use among the most uncivilized people 
met with by early navigators. Line fishing in this country is extensively carried on for the 
capture especially of cod, ling, haddock and whiting, and hooked fish of these kinds usually 
command a higher price than those caught in the trawl as their delicacy is not impaired by 
the knocking about to which they are subjected when massed together among the varied and 
often crowded contents of the beam-trawl. The various plans adopted in different countries 
for fitting out the special gear for the capture of particular kinds of fish both by hand-line 
and long line are well represented, and no doubt may be studied with advantage. 

Objects of special interest will be found in the numerous models of, and designs for, 
the boats and vessels in which the fisheries are carried on. The increasing tendency in 
recent times to fish at long distances from the land and to remain at sea for even many weeks 
at a time, has led to a marked change in the character of the fishing vessels employed, and 
has induced builders to study the advantages of greater size and improved designs in the 
construction of vessels Capable of facing the bad weather to which they are sure sooner or 
later to be exposed. Even in the smaller boats more commonly employed in drift fishing, 
the advantage of their being decked is daily becoming more evident, for they can stand worse 
weather and therefore can risk going farther to sea, and seeking the shoals of fish where 
formerly they dared not venture, The most important improvement, however, in connection 
with fishing craft is the employment of steam power; and it is applied in various ways, 
although the additional expense incurred interfered for some time with even its present partial 
adoption. Its advantage, however, is very great, enabling the fishing boats to go to and 
return quickly from their fishing grounds, saving both time and labour in hauling their 
nets, and especially in the case of deep-sea trawling, where fast steam " carriers " collect the 
fish from a fleet of trawlers, and make the best of their way with it to the nearest market ; 
so that whether used as a partial substitute for sails, for economising labour on board ship, 
or securing a quick delivery of the fish at the market, the application of steam to fishing 
vessels must be regarded as one of the most important steps yet taken in the development of 
the deep-sea fisheries. The sea-going character of so many of our fishing vessels obliges 
them also to be fitted out with more elaborate appliances than were ever thought of by the 
simple-minded fishermen of little more than a generation back. They have now to deal with 
everything on a larger scale, and they find the benefit of numerous inventions and recent 
improvements in capstans, compasses, lights, barometers, &c., helping them to do their work 
more easily, and to take better precautions against the many dangers to which they are exposed 
in the stormy weather they have so frequently to contend with. 

The dangers to which fishermen are so often subjected when at sea are, however, not the 
only ones they have to deal with, and on many exposed parts of the coast their greatest difficulty 
frequently meets them on their return home, when they have perhaps to run before the gale 
for the narrow entrance of the little fishing harbour which is the only protection they have for 
their boats. Sad tales of distress might be told of boats being dashed to pieces against the 
piers in attempting to enter some of the little harbours on the Scotch coast, or, having failed 
lo properly make the entrance, are helplessly driven on the neighbouring rocks, and perish 
within sight of their homes. Models of suitable artificial harbours for fishing-boats therefore 
deserve the best attention, and in connection with this subject some proposed methods for 
breaking the force of the sea at the entrance to harbours may be examined with interest. 

Life-boats and life-saving apparatus will probably appear to many people to have but little 
to do with sea-fishing; but unfortunately such is not the case. The large scale on which 
the deep-sea fisheries are now carried on, and the boat work necessary for conveying the fish 
from the trawlers to the carriers in all kinds of weather, open a wide field for the use of 
life-belts, and the adaptation of some of the principles on which life-boats are constructed to 
the small boats belonging to the fishing vessel. Fishermen are, however, very careless of danger 
and, like sailors in general, are disposed to regard simple precautions for safety as implying a 
doubt of their courage and hardihood. The winter storms however rarely pass over without 
the fishermen finding the advantage of the life-boat system which has been so admirably

organised around our coasts. The splendid display of life-boats and life-saving apparatus beat 
strong testimony to the wide interest now felt at home and abroad in this important subject. 
Finally, some attention is being given to the means of communicating from the shore to lights 
ships or possibly to stations for fishing vessels by submarine cables or methods of signalling; 
and a slight consideration of the variety of objects now brought under notice will show 
how many interests are concerned in the practical working of the sea fisheries, and in 
procuring the large supply of wholesome food which is daily brought in from them to the

(2) Model of Harbour for fishery purposes, consisting of a floating breakwater or outer 
harbour, as an anchorage at all times of tide and weather ; an inner harbour with wharves, 
the sea walls so placed as to form a well defined entrance, and constructed in such a form as 
to admit additional wave water, and thus make the outgoing tide completely overpower the 
incoming one in its action on the bar at the mouth of any river or creek. This action, aided 
by the automatic submarine dredge, permanently sweeps away the bar and prevents it from 
reforming. (3) Submarine self-acting Dredge for clearing away bar from river mouths. 
Every outgoing tide propels the dredge, and carries away the silt or sand. (4) Permanent 
self-bury Anchor. Unlike ordinary anchors, as it is intended never to be heaved again, but

to take root and become a fixture, for use with light vessels, beacons, floating breakwaters. 
(5) Green way Buoy, half size. A row of these buoys form the breakwater. These detached 
portions of the breakwater cleave the waves, and turn the cleft portions against each other, 
thus causing them to expend their force innocuously, and creating a safe anchorage behind. 
Each buoy creates its own electric light and carries a fog bell. (6) Model of Greenway 
Breakwater as a harbour of refuge on the coast. Purely a shelter harbour for use during 
storm, or when low tide prevents ingress to a neighbouring port, may be constructed in three 
months, at small cost, and affording any depth of water the largest vessel can require. If 
repeated every fifty miles along the coast it would almost prevent shipwreck, and save one 
thousand lives a year. (7) Model of Greenway Breakwater as a harbour of refuge on the 
Dogger Bank, or other fishing resort, where fishing boats might have shelter for a few hours 
at any time without losing days by leaving the banks for the coast and its fatal high tide 
harbours ; where might lie permanently a store vessel from which smacks might temporarily 
refit ; and which would form a port of call for the steamers sent out by smack owners 
to collect the fish. (8) Model of Greenway Breakwater as supplementing existing harbour 
works, protecting the existing stone piers, and thus obviating the necessity for frequent repairs 
as at Wick (where the sea overturned a massive coping of 800 tons in one block), Plymouth, 
&c., and creating an additional outer anchorage. (9) Model of Greenway Breakwater shelter- 
ing a lighthouse, and giving access to them at all times. Thus preventing the chance of the 
starvation of the men and extinction of the lights as almost occurred recently at three of the 
most important lighthouses Calf, Wolf, and Eddystone. (10) Model of Greenway Breakwater 
protecting a coast threatened by marine encroachment, at far less cost and more permanently 
than a continuous sea-wall often needing repair.

390. BRASSEY, LADY, Normanhurst Court, Battle, Sussex. (1) Model of 
a Viking Ship, the " Ellida." So named by Lady Brassey^after one of the most famous Viking 
vessels. The model exhibited, a yacht's gig, represents in the details of her structure, the 
great "Viking" Ship. It was adapted by the Marquis of Ailsa, and built at the Culzean Yacht 
and Steam-Launch Works, Maybole, Scotland. The original was discovered in 1880 at 
Gokstad, near the town of Sandefjord, west of the mouth of Christiana Fjord, a farm on a 
peninsula in Norway. The great interest attached to it is in consequence of it having been 
one of the burial war-ships in which noted men, according to tradition, were interred during the 
9th, 10th, and llth centuries after Christ. This mode of burial has proved of great importance 
to archaeologists, since on excavating some of the grave-mounds in which it was adopted, ships 
from that remote period have been brought to light in a more or less perfect state of pre- 
servation. The period is the later Iron Age or " Viking " Period. It rarely happens that 
grave-mounds consist of a substance in which wood can be preserved for centuries, but this ship 
(like one other, found in the parish of Tune in 1867 between the Christiana Fjord and the 
Swedish frontier) seems to have been buried in a mound of blue-clay, a species of earth 
specially selected for its excellent qualities as a preserver of wood. It was excavated by Mr. 
Nicolaysen, and now belongs to the collection of antiquities in the University of Christiania.

The original is 77 ft. 11 in. in length, as she now stands ; a few pieces of the woodwork, want- 
ing in the original, have been supplied after a careful study. These restored parts are distin- 
guished by a different colour. The ship is entirely of oak, clinker-built, the boards connected 
with iron nails, and the seams caulked with oakum, made of cows' hair spun into three-stranded 
cord. The planking is about one inch thick. Both oars and canvas were used to propel her. 
Of the former there were sixteen on either side, so that thirty-two men would thus be required 
to serve the oars only ; and doubtless the full complement would not be less than forty hands. 
There has been no true deck, only loose boards cut into the frames. The tent cloth is made 
of a fine woollen texture, whilst the cords for fastening are of hemp. The pieces of ships' rope, 
of which a good many were found, are of bast. The rudder is hung by a rope a little forward of 
the sternpost on the right-hand side, as usual in all vessels of the Viking Period, and long 
after, down indeed to the 14th century, hence " starboard " or steering board, the right-hand 
side of a ship. The method of fastening and guiding this ancient style of side-rudder was not 
satisfactorily known previous to the discovery of this Gokstad vessel. In that portion of the 
ship first opened was found a piece of timber, evidently the anchor-stock, with traces of 
iron. Also two or three small boats neatly built of oak. Underneath this were the oars, 
some 20 feet in length, exceedingly interesting through their workmanship. The following 
other articles were found : Trace of a landing stage, fragments of sleeping berth, portion of 
wooden chair and a great variety of kitchen utensils, including a massive copper kettle, 
wooden plates and drinking-cups, &c. The grave or burial chamber was built just behind 
the mast, and was 15 feet square. In this room, which has a gable roof, the remains of the 
dead were deposited unburnt, and no doubt on a bed, portions of which were found. Robbers 
had, however, been there, who had dug into the mound, accounting for the fact that the bones 
had disappeared. No implements of war were found, but a series of miscellaneous articles, 
including iron fish-hooks and a turned draughtsman of horn in the grave chamber, as well 
as wearing apparel of gold brocade. The barrow or mound from which it was excavated 
was ^rery large and of the usual circular form. The ship was interred in the middle, on 
her keel, decorated with shields hung close together along the rail on both sides of the 
vessel. A few of these shields have been restored and placed in position. BRYCE-WRIGHT.

new feature in life-saving appliances ; a balloon inflated with gas made in mid ocean, and held 
captive at an elevation of a "few hundred feet above the person or a boat will and must enforce 
attention. (5) Gas-bottle : as a portable instrument, in which gas may be generated, or com-

its adoption in all sea-going craft, more particularly in life boats for inflating balloon signals 
and cooking. The air-tight compartments may be utilized for the storage of compressed gas.

portion is Bimply a water tank made in the form of the lower part of an ordinary boat. They 
are connected by four chains which admit of the lowering of the tank a considerable distance 
below the raft. To meet the exigencies arising from a rough sea, the tank is charged with 
water and lowered by means of the four chains ; to regain its normal condition the water is 
expelled from the tank by forcing air into it.

GREEN, JOSEPH, The Docks, Lerwick, Shetland. Model of a 
" Sixern," " Sixareen," or six-oared yawl (Old Norse Sexoeringr). Scale, one inch to the foot. 
Timber, Norway fir. Fastened, iron. Length on keel, 20ft.; length, over-all, 29 ft; beam, 
amidships, 8 ft. ; depth, at stem-head, 5 ft. ; depth, amidships, 3 ft. 3 in. ; depth, at stern-post, 
4 ft. 9 in. ; oars, ars, pulled with one thole-pin called a kale (Old Norse Tteipr) and a grummet, 
called a humlaband (Old Norse, homluband), length of, 16 ft. ; mast, total length of, 22 ft. ; yard, 
total length of, 18ft. ; hoist of sail, 18ft. Gin. Total cost, all found, except nets and lines, 26. 
Till within the last forty years or so, all the larger Shetland boats were imported direct from 
Norway in boards ready for putting together. At that time, the boats rarely, if ever, exceeded 
18 ft. on keel, and had a somewhat flatter floored midship section. Even at the present day 
most, if not all, of the names of the different portions of a sixern, of the articles of her 
equipment, and of the terms used in'her navigation and in connection with fishing, are, at any 
rate, in the outlying parts of Shetland, of Norse origin. 

LAURENCE, JOHN ROBERT, Fair Isle, Shetland. Model of a 
Fair Isle Skiff. 

As this model was not made by a professional boatbuidler, the following details of a typical Fair Isle Skiff 
kindly supplied by Mr. John Eunson, boatbuilder, East Shore, Dunrossness, are inserted in the place of measures 
taken from the model itself. 

Timber, fir. Fastened, iron. Length, on keel, 15 ft. 6 in. ; length, over-all, 22 ft. ; beam ; 
extreme, 5 ft. 8 in. ; depth, at stem-head, 3 ft. 6 in. ; depth, at stern-post, 3 ft. 3 in. ; mast, stepped 
nearly amidships, total length of, 14 ft. 6_in. ; yard, total length of, 11 ft. ; hoist of sail, 14 ft. ; 
oars or paddles (three pair), pulled, as in 'sixern, with Jtabe and humlaland, each oar or paddle 
being in length 10 ft. 2 in. Total cost, all found, except fishing lines, 6 10s. These Fair Isle 
Skiffs, though apparently mere cockle-shells, are very buoyant, and it is said to be perfectly 
wonderful the amount of sea they will live through. Three men constitute the crew, who 
pull a very short chopping stroke, at times, when cutting an eddy or string of tide, reaching 
nearly forty-five a minute. In the last century, similar boats seem to have been in use all 
over Shetland, but at the present day they are confined to Fair Isle. 

ORKNEY, The .Commissioners of Supply for. Model of a Westray, 
or North Isles, Yawl. Scale, one inch to the foot. Timber, oak and white Norwegian pine. 
Fastened, galvanized iron. Length, on keel, 14 ft. ; length, over-all, 19ft. 3 in. ; beam, extreme, 
7 ft. 6 in. ; depth at stem-head, 4 ft. 7 in. ; depth, at lowest point of gunwale, 3 ft. 6 in. ; depth, 
at stern-post, 4 ft. 4J in. ; oars (two pair), one pair 14 ft., the other, 12 ft. ; masts (two), each 
16 ft. ; foremast, stepped from stem, 2 ft. 4 in. ; mainmast, stepped from stem, 9 ft. ; bowsprit, 
outboard, 5 ft. ; sails, jib, lateen foresail, and lateen boom-mainsail : jib, hoist, 13 ft., foot, 6 ft. 
6 in. foresail, yard, 9 ft., hoist, 12 ft., foot, 10 ft. mainsail, yard, 8 ft. 6 in., hoist, 12 ft., 
foot, 10ft., boom, lift.. Cost, equipped for sea, 15. The yawl is said to be very buoyant, 
and capable of living through very heavy sea ; a fair sailer in smooth water, but not weatherly 
in rough water or chopping seas. 

The Norse type of boat in 'the Orkneys is confined chiefly to the North Isles, where skiffs and hybrids 
between a skiff and a yawl are sometimes smack-rigged. In 1 former days all the large boats used at the Orcadian- 
herring fishery were similar in type and rig to the North Isles yawl. These, however, are now superseded by 
the " Firthy " boats in common use on the East Coast of Scotland. In the Southern Isles the smaller boats are 
generally built on similar lines to the ordinary English and Scotch type of small boats, and as a rule are sprit rigged.

TUDOR, JOHN R., 5 Magdalen Koad, St. Leonard's-on-Sea. Model 

of a Faroese " Eight-man boat," fully equipped for the grind or chase of the Grindehval or Grin- 
defish DelpMnus deductor of Scoresby, and the Ca'in', or Bottle-nose Whale of Shetland and the 
Orkneys. Scale, one inch to the foot. Length, on keel, 16 ft. 6 in. ; length, over-all, 28 ft. 6 in. ; 
beam, extreme, 6 ft. 6 in. ; depth, at stem-head, 6 ft. ; depth, at lowest point of gunwale, 
3 ft. ; depth, at stern-post, 5 ft. 6 in. ; foremast, 15 ft. 9 in. ; foreyard, 6 ft. ; mainmast, 13 ft. 6 in. ; 
mainyard, 10 ft. ; oars (eight. in number), pulled double-banked, each 11 ft. 9 in. The foremast 
can be stepped either at the fore-thwart or at the second thwart. The former is said to be 
the more usual place, and when thus stepped, the boat, it is said, will look pretty nearly in the 
wind's eye. The whaling implements consist of 1. Two lances (hvalvaaberi), each 12 in. 
long and 4 in. broad (upon a wooden shaft, 6 ft. long), to which a thin line is attached. 2. Two 
hooks (soJindkroge) and lines for towing the whales when dead. 3. A fishing lead or stone, 
about 3 Ibs. in weight, slung on to a long line, and used (1) for anchoring or deadening the 
boat's way ; (2) as a missile for driving the whales ashore in a whale-voe (hvalvaag) i.e. one 
with a gradually sloping bottom of loose sand or mud. The Shetland Sixern, the Fair Isle Skiff, 
the North Isles (Orkney) yawl, and the Faroese boat-model are all exhibited together, in order 
to show the descent of the fishing boats, of the present day, belonging to the islands of the 
Western haaf, from the langsMp of Viking times. Curiously to relate, the styri or rudder of 
the Viking ships seems to have survived in the Faroes till the present century, as Landt, in 
his Description of the Feroe Islands, says of the Faroese boats of his day : 

Few of these boats are built with a rudder, they are generally steered by means of the oars, yet some of them 
are furnished with what is called stuiri, which is au implement like a short oar, with which the master steers the 
boat when necessary. 

It will be noticed that all four models have, in common with the Gokstad Viking Ship, 
the following characteristics in varying degrees They are all clincher-built ; have stems and 
sterns alike ; a flat, or comparatively flat, midship section ; a fine run aft ; rake of stem and 
stern posts ; and considerable sheer of gunwale.

Great Britain Freshwater Fishing. 49 


THE origin of the art of angling is lost in the mist of ages. There is ample testimony to 
show that even fly-fishing with an imitation of the natural fly was practised more than 2000 
years ago. JElian mentions the fact, and accurately describes the trout in the river Astreus 
taking a natural fly called Hippurus, and, how the natives of Macedonia constructed an 
imitation with a body of purple wool and with " wings of a waxy colour," which they dropped 
down the stream and which was seized by the fish. But the art of angling was far older than 
this, as the carvings on ancient Egyptian monuments amply testify. The Chinese and Japanese 
have been anglers for ages. The artificial flies of the Japanese would attract the curious 
attention of British anglers in the present day. The first author of whom we have any note 
in this country, who described "the art of Fyshynge with an Angle," was Dame Juliana 
Berners, Prioress of Sopwell nunnery in Hertfordshire, who wrote and published the Book of 
St. Albans in 1486. The first edition, printed by the schoolmaster printer of St. Albans, did 
not contain the treatise on angling, but the second, " Enprynted at Westmestre by Wynkyn 
the Worde in the yere of thyncarnacon of our] lorde mcccclxxxxvi " contained the treatise of 
fishing. Angling in those days was by no means so common a practice as it is now, as may 
be gathered from the reason given by the worthy prioress for including this pamphlet in the 
much larger publication, as she puts it, * bycause that this preseant treatyse sholde not come 
to the handys of echo ydle persone whyche wolde desire it yf it were enprynted allonej by 
itself and put in a lytyle plaunflett, therefore I have compylyd it in a greter volume of dyverse 
bokys concernynge to gentyll and noble men to the entent that the forsayd ydle persones 
whyche sholde have* but lytyle mesure in the sayd dysporte of fysshing sholde not by this 
meane utterly dystroye it." Probably for this reason the number of authors who followed 
Dame Juliana for the next 200 years or so were very limited. In 1653 Isaak Walton wrote 
his delightful pastoral, which even at the present day is devoured with pleasure not only by 
anglers but by all lovers of country life and scenes. For another 200 years or so the 
number of works on angling came out but slowly, though far more rapidly than in the previous 
time. In 1811 one of the best known lists of angling works was published by G. W. H. Ellis; 
it numbered 80 works. Since then, however, the increase has been most rapid, and during 
the last 15 or 20 years work after work has poured out of the press until in the present year 
of 1883 we read in the new edition of the Bibliotheca Piscatoria, published by Messrs. 
Westwood and Satchell lately, that no less than 3158 editions and reprints of 2148 distinct 
works are given and described in their catalogue. Tackle in the far-off times was of the 
rudest, a taper reed for a rod, some twisted horsehairs for a line, and a hook more remarkable 
for power than finish, which is not surprising when we find that amateur hook-making was 
generally practised in those days. And even in books not much more than 100 years old, minute 
directions were given as to the manufacture of hooks. But the increase of the literature is 
symptomatic of the increase in the practice of angling, and if the noble and gentle Dame Juliana 
could only come out of Sopwell Priory to the not far distant banks of the Lea and see the 
class of people who throng its banks on any and every holiday to indulge in the gentle 
" dysporte of fysshynge with an angle," she would indeed be filled with amazement. For the 
sport of angling is now not only the sport of the select few, but of the many ; it is a benefi- 
cent, health-giving pursuit, good both for the body and mind of the toiling thousands or even 
millions who throng the back streets of our larger cities, and who have no other inducement to 
leave their unhealthy habitations for the fresh air of the country. From this point of view 
(and it is a national point) the art ^of angling is a powerful lever for good if properly worked 
and exercised. Fifty years ago the London angler was derided as the Cockney fisherman, and 
jokes innumerable were cut upon his skill, his rod and his tackle ; all this is changed, the 
fishermen and the tackle now sent forth from the great Metropolis are alike of the first excel- 
lence. Yearly, at the annual holiday, mighty fishers peers, members of Parliament, profes- 
sional men, hard worked men of business, rush off to Norway or Canada, the Highlands of 
Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, and by the banks of murmuring stream or thundering torrent 
recuperate brain, muscle and nerve power, in the absorbing pursuit after trout or salmon, 
returning after a six weeks' interregnum renewed and invigorated, and prepared to encounter 
anew the toil and exigencies of modern life and labours. That all the items required for 


50 Great Britain^ Divisions XIIL-XVIL North Gallery. 

the practice of their art should be constantly improved upon and brought to the most excellent 
and handy make and fashion, is a matter of course. Rods, reels and lines, though admirable 
enough to meet all requirements in days gone by, are undoubtedly both better made and 
better suited to modern needs now, if the same amount of care is bestowed on their manu- 
facture which was wont to be given to them formerly. That much inferior tackle is also 
turned out, owing to the mania for cheapness, is undoubted. Manufacturers to meet this 
desire set up all sorts of clever time-and labour-saving machinery, and turn out rods by the 
score where they could only turn out units by hand. But the careful inspection and the 
thorough test so requisite in the case of a really good article, cannot be and is not given ; 
and though it is quite probable that by accident you may get a fairly good thing cheaply, it is 
equally so that you may find your purchase dear at any price, If an angler desires tackle 
which he can trust in, he should go to the best makers and pay the best price for it. Nets 
and other apparatus for fishing for salmon and other fish in fresh water have been so improved 
that the only fear is that they may become too perfect for the prosperity of the fisheries ; 
while the improvements in waterproof clothing, boats, and all other fishing requisites can 
better be seen than described. All countries have contributed to send us the best they can 
produce in all these matters, and the choice we now have is truly vast and varied.

WHILST the prinury object of all International Industrial Exhibitions has ever been the 
advancement of A?t, Industry, and Commerce, they have not the less contributed to exhibit 
the wonderful resources of human genius, skill, and labour. With the present advanced 
state of the division of labour, it is difficult, in many cases, to trace the workmanship of 
any piece of work direct to the labourer himself. Hence the most exquisite specimens of 
mechanical or hand industry are often only known by the names of the manufacturers or 
producers who happen to exhibit them. But in a Fishery Exhibition there is not the same 
difficulty in identifying the part which the labourer has taken in the articles exhibited, and 
we are thereby brought in direct contact with the fisherman himself. 

It may not be easy to give material illustration of the economic condition of fishermen, 
nevertheless, we shall find it to a large extent reflected in the condition of the industry. If 
we see any fishery in the main carried on in little boats, owned by the fishermen themselves, in 
the same manner as the old handlooms in the silk industry, with more hands therein employed 
than would be required with due regard to economy, with antiquated or insufficient appliances, 
and using no other power than the wind, evidencing in fact on all sides want of capital and 
ingenuity, it is easy to conclude that the economic condition of the fishing population is 
unsatisfactory. If we see any fishery carried on in large and strong boats, worked on a large 
scale, with the most modern and effective gear and nets, using steam-power and attracting 
large capital, we may safely gather from it that the economic condition of the fishermen and 
all connected with the industry is likewise good, 

Great Britain Economic Condition of Fishermen. 59 

The fishing industry is allied to agriculture in so far as it is directed to gathering the 
spontaneous products of nature and placing it within reach of consumption and commerce. 
But it is also a manufacturing industry in all that regards drying, salting, curing, kippering, 
smoking, &c., and thereby subject to the factory laws. There is a wide difference in the 
condition of the industry between river fisheries and deep-sea fisheries, such as the herring, 
the cod, the pilchard, the whale, the oyster, and many others. In all cases, however, the 
fishing industry is fitful and irregular in times and seasons, and subject to great alternations 
of pressure, with long intervals of idleness, a circumstance which deeply affects the economic 
condition of the workers. In some localities the fisherfolk follow the fish ; when the fishing 
is ended in one locality, they proceed to another. In other localities the fisherfolk alternate 
fishing and agricultural labour ; and in others, when fishing is ended, the fishermen engage 
as sailors. But in all cases the occupation is of a most intermittent character, inconsistent 
with persistent labour, and well fitted to encourage lassitude and laziness. The fishing 
population can scarcely be said to belong to the towns, though affected by many of the 
conditions of town life. All along the coast-line of the British Isles and other countries, yet 
centred in fishing ports of greater or less importance, there they live, a hardy, adventurous 
race, ready, at all hazards, to gather the inexhaustible spoils of the sea. 

In several respects the fisherman's lot is worse than that of the agricultural labourer. It 
was stated in the Report of the Royal Commissioners on Sea Fisheries, that whilst, once 
in the year, an acre of good land, carefully tilled, produces a ton of corn, or two or three cwts. 
of meat or cheese, the same area at the bottom of the sea on the best fishing ground may 
yield a greater weight of food to the persevering fisherman every week in the year. Yet the 
result to those immediately interested are widely different. Thero are in the United Kingdom 
about 120,000 persons constantly, or occasionally, employed in fishing, who with their 
dependants may be taken at 400,000, and the total annual value of the British fisheries is 
stated to be over eleven million pounds sterling, giving an average produce of about 27 per 
head, whilst about 3,300,000 persons employed in agriculture raise annually produce to the 
extent of about 270,000,000, giving an average of about 82 per head. Accordingly the 
portion falling to the immediate workers respectively are very different. Whilst of the 
11,000,000 produced by the fisheries scarcely thirty per cent., or 3,000,000 go to the pockets 
of the fishermen, of the 270,000,000, the total produce of land, at least 25 per cent., or 
about 70,000,000, are spent in wages, giving in the case of the fishermen about 10 per head, 
exclusive of incomes from other occupations, and in the case of the agriculturist about 
21 per head a year, or, taking two earners per family, less than 6. a week for the fisherman, 
and about 16s. a week for the agriculturist. Follow, moreover, a fisherman family and a 
family of the agricultural labourer in their homes. The fisherman's family have to pay 10 
to 12 a year for house rent, the agriculturist 2 to 4 per annum. The agriculturist family 
has vegetables in abundance always at hand, the fisherman's must purchase everything. 

But how is it that the fisherman gets comparatively so little of the produce of his labour ? 
Can any economy be effected in the disposal of the fish ? Would not the contract of wages, 
which would leave the master free to economise the produce, prove more advantageous than 
the present system ? Or would not a contract of partnership between the owners and the 
fishermen, in the shape of the Commandite principle, answer the purpose better still? What 
can be done to render the industry more productive and more profitable ? Could not steam 
power be introduced in British fishing vessels as the French have introduced in theirs? Are 
not the boats used too small in most cases ? Are the gear and nets all that can be desired ? 
And what can be done to introduce more safety to life and ' property ? Can the electric 
telegraph be better utilized for the announcement to fishing vessels already at sea of 
threatening storms ? Is there not great need of larger and more frequent harbours of refuge 
all along the coasts? Are the boats and gear sufficiently insured, or can any system of 
mutual insurance be safely introduced? Is life insurance sufficiently appreciated by our 
fishermen ? Exposed to constant danger, do they take advantage of that beneficial system to 
provide that in case of loss of life their friends and relations shall not be left altogether 
forlorn ? The Post Office Savings Banks are extensively diffused. Do they enter all the nooks 
and corners of the coast, so as to encourage thrift and self-reliance among all connected with 
the fisheries? These are the questions which determine the economic condition of our

HIS class has been divided into two groups, consisting (1) of those products of the fisheries 
hich by undergoing some process of preservation can be made available as useful articles 
f food for weeks, months, or even years after the fish so treated has been caught, and (2) 
thers from which oils, manures, and materials applicable to mechanical, agricultural or 
ornamental purposes are obtained. 

Attention may first be directed to the various modes of curing fish for edible purposes, 
and these are mainly included under salting and smoking, although simply drying in the 
air is sufficient in some cases as a rough mode of preservation. In our own country, and 
especially in Sweden and Norway among Continental nations, curing operations have long 
been extensively carried on, and wholesome competition between them to meet the require- 
ments of the German and other markets has done much to ensure the strictest attention being 
given to the selection of the best fish and all that is necessary for perfection in curing. This 
especially refers to what is known in this country as the " White herring cure," a method of 
preservation which employs thousands of men and women in Scotland, and which a special 
Board of Fisheries takes under its immediate superintendence, and certifies with its brand 
on the casks if the curing has been properly done, and the curers desire the official marks. 
The preparation of white herrings is very simple, and essentially consists in packing the fish 
in salt, which soon turns to brine, and this method of preparation is termed the " wet cure." 
The same method is applicable to other kinds of fish, particularly to cod and ling, and with 
some little modification to pilchards, which in Cornwall and on the north coast of Spain 
are largely cured for the Mediterranean markets. The great distinction between the treat- 
ment of pilchards and other kinds of fish cured wet being in the fact of pilchards being piled 
up in alternate layers of fish and salt on the ground for a few weeks before they are finally 
packed with salt in the barrels. By this treatment a considerable quantity of useful oil is 
obtained from them, and the fish are rendered more palatable. The numerous examples of 
fish from various countries cured by merely salting and drying show how much may be done 
in preserving fish for food with little trouble and at a trifling cost. The important fisheries 
of Newfoundland well represent this method of curing. Another mode of preservation is 
that so familiar on our tables in the form of sardines cured in oil. This method is applied 
to several kinds of fish in foreign countries, but has been only tried in our own within the 
last few years, and that with young pilchards, the fish which in France are so largely cured 
and sold under the name of sardines. 

Curing with salt and smoke is a more elaborate process, which is especially carried out 
in this country, and the several models of curing-houses here exhibited well illustrate the 
manner in which red herrings, bloaters and kippers are prepared for the home and foreign 
markets, and will be examined with general interest, This mode of curing has been enor- 

Great Britain Clasd III. Commercial and Economic. 65 

mously extended within comparatively recent years. Many people will be surprised to hear 
that hardly more than thirty years ago, when trawling was beginning to be systematically 
carried on in the North Sea, haddocks were caught in such vast numbers that there was 
hardly any market for them, and the fishermen were ordered to bring only a certain 
number ashore. Tons of them were then thrown overboard again ; but the plan of smoking 
these fish was suggested and proved so successful that quite a new industry resulted from it, 
and now smoked haddock is so abundant that it comes within the reach of almost the poorest 
of the population. The preservation" in tins of everything which may be roughly included 
under the head of fish forms another very important industry, especially on the other side 
of the Atlantic, and large supplies are sent to this country, much of it to be again exported 
all over the world as well as for consumption on board ship ; and this in addition to the 
well-known productions of our own manufacturers. The universal demand for fish in some 
shape, whether fresh or preserved, is constantly increasing; and when it is remembered 
that really good fish is only found in any abundance in temperate or cool climates, and that 
comparatively few countries are fortunate enough to possess a favourable coast under such 
conditions, the advantages of being able to preserve fish in a fit state for food for long 
periods so as to bear carriage all over the world cannot fail to be properly appreciated. 

In addition to the various kinds of cured or preserved fish, numerous articles coming 
under the head of fish products deserve some attention. Such are medicinal oils, roes, 
sounds, gelatine and isinglass. These are for the most part the productions of northern 
climates, and wherever the cod fishery is carried on with the object of curing the fish, the 
livers and roes are carefully kept, and form an appreciable item in the results of the fishery. 
It is a matter of some interest that the success of the sardine fishery in the Bay of Biscay is 
largely dependent on the fishermen being supplied with plenty of cod-roe. It is used as bait, 
and after being broken up, the separated grains are plentifully scattered among the nets as 
they float in the water, and the sardines in their eagerness to obtain this attractive food, 
find their way into the nets and are caught. Caviare, one of the peculiar products of Russia, 
is prepared from the roe of various species of sturgeon, and undergoes little preparation 
beyond salting and pressing; but many examples will be observed among the productions 
of other countries, especially of Sweden, of the roes of several kinds of sea fish prepared 
in the same manner as the original Russian caviare. The refuse of fish is utilised to some 
extent by being converted into manure or fish guano ; and sprats in this country during the 
height of the special season when these fish are most abundant and the ordinary markets 
are glutted with them, are sold in thousands of bushels direct from the fishing vessels, and 
conveyed inland by the neighbouring railways to be thrown on the fields. The different oils 
obtained from sundry kinds of fish, seals and whales, will attract attention from the many uses 
to which they are applied, especially for lubrication, and the true fish oils have a special 
value in the preparation of leather of various kinds. 

Pearls, mother-of-pearl and tortoiseshell being the special productions of warm climateB, 
are best represented in the exhibits of some of our colonial possessions and countries near the 
tropics. Ceylon pearls have been famous for centuries, and still take their place in the 
market, although the supply is small compared with that from the Persian Gulf and a few 
other localities. The shells of the pearl oyster are represented in various stages of growth and 
showing the nacreous lining of the same material as that of which the pearl itself is entirely 
composed. The mother-of-pearl, as this substance is called, is in these oysters too thin and 
small to be useful for manufacturing purposes, and this beautiful material, so much used for 
ornamental work, is obtained from a much larger oyster, the shell of which is thick and 
massive, and whose value depends almost entirely on the shell itself, and not on the small 
pearls produced in it. A large collection of objects will attract attention from their beauty 
and the variety of purposes to which the skins of certain kinds of fish and reptiles are 
applied, notwithstanding their unpromising nature; and much interest will be felt in the 
beautiful display of coral, tortoiseshell and shell ornaments, and the several methods by 
which they can be turned to account. 

Returning once more to the large subject of obtaining an abundant supply of fish as an 
article of food, we find numerous appliances for keeping the fish cool during transport from 
the sea to the market, and this section deserves careful examination, as the main principle of 

66 Great Britain Divisions XXV., XXVI. Corridor to Fish Market. 

refrigeration or cooling here illustrated has an important bearing on the question of transport- 
ing other kinds of perishable food from distant countries. Finally, attention may be directed 
to the several plans and models of fish-markets with their arrangements for the quick receiving 
and delivery of the fish, and altogether it will be noted that large as are the interests of 
those concerned in the actual fisheries, those connected with the transport, preservation 
and disposal of the fish are hardly less important.

MACHINERY IN MOTION. See Plan, p. 84. 


MACHINERY, in whatever form, is from its very nature and origin indissolubly connected 
with civilisation. Its conception needs years of accumulated thought; its construction 
requires stores of accumulated wealth ; and its application demands large fields of accu- 
mulated material. No one, unless he have had long practice in such kind of work, can desire 
off-hand an effective instrument for executing the purposes of the simplest handicraft. No 
one can go a single step out of the regular course of trade without becoming involved in 
expenses to which he can foresee no practical limit. No one would dream of incurring the 
outlay of time and capital needed for the erection of machinery, unless the store of materials 
for which it is destined far exceed the amount which could be worked in the same time by 
hand. Now these three qualifications alone, accumulated capital, accumulated labour, accu- 
mulated thought, form three main elements in the analysis of material civilisation ; but there 
is a further aspect to the question which indicates the need for a still higher degree of culture. 
The introduction of machinery inevitably entails an increased demand, both upon the moral 
and intellectual qualities in proportion to its own power and complexity. Vigilance, patience, 
concentrated attention, strict fidelity to orders, combined with latent fertility of resource, 
liable at any moment to be called into action these and other similar Dualities are absolute 
essentials for the machinist, and are developed in him by the mere pursuit of his daily 
occupations. Accordingly the progress made from a material point of view by the various 
classes of the body politic may be to a great extent measured and defined by the ingenuity of 
instruments adapted for the purposes of their industry, as for instance in the bonanza farms of 
America, where every 4 kind of agricultural process is accomplished by steam. In this light the 
application of machinery to fishing possesses a peculiar interest, for it shows how the barriers 
of centuries are silently giving way, and the character of poverty and simplicity, which for so 
long distinguished this ancient industry, is gradually, not to say rapidly, changing beneath 
the combined influences of wealth and thought. 

An inquiry, therefore, of the extent to which machinery now enters into the apparatus of 
fishing is evidently a matter of high interest, both from a commercial and a social point 
of view. An analysis of this kind can only be properly performed, of course, by an examina- 
tion of the particular instances wherein machinery has been successfully applied, and as no 
more favourable opportunity for such an investigation can well be conceived than is afforded 

80 Great Britain Machinery in Motion. 

by the collection contained in the present Exhibition, it will be advisable to take a glance at 
some of the chief exhibits of this nature, so as to possess some practical basis for generaliza- 
tion. A very brief survey suffices to show that in the case of fishing, as of a hundred 
other kinds of labour, the principal agent in effecting change has been the power of steam. 
For the reception of this power trawling, itself a device born of the present century, is 
peculiarly adapted, both from the greater capacity of its vessels and the necessity of regulating 
their speed. Accordingly, engines and boilers suitable for steam trawlers, and for the steam 
fish carriers also necessitated by the long voyages to the North Sea, form no inconsiderable 
portion of the articles on view. At one stand, that of Messrs. Kuston, we find the vertical 
engine fitted, as in a boat, with freshwater tanks on either side to save the use of salt water in 
the boiler. At another, that of Messrs. Kose & Co., we have the famous Kingston winch with 
automatic laying-in gear and a whole series of novel appliances adaptable for trawling. 
The whole mass of water again required for the Aquarium is purified by the Atkins 
system and Dr. Clarke's process, and the same principle could with ease be applied to 

keeping large beds of our rivers, containing, say, twenty million gallons of water 

wholly free from chalk and other impurities for the preservation and increase of fish. 

Another ingenious adaptation of steam to steering is that of the worm and worm-wheel 

motion devised by Messrs. Davis, in such a way that the strain, acting at right angles to the 

worm, is unable to produce a circular motion, whereby the kick of the wheel, so dangerous to 

the helmsman and so trying to the gear, is obviated even in the roughest weather. Windlasses 

too of a special character are here required, both for ordinary purposes and also for hauling 

in the trawl. In connection with this last point, it may be observed the very simple and 

easily worked invention for raising ships '.exhibited by Messrs. Thomson would seem capable 

of easy application to raising the trawl for those smacks to which steam power has not been 

fitted. So, again, to accomplish a large catch is much, but to accomplish it without waste is of 

at least equal importance. How shall the immature fry be permitted to escape ? That is a 

question upon which depends the fate of the whole rising generation of fishes, and therefore 

of the whole rising generation of fishermen. Mr. Eead furnishes us with a tentative answer. 

The same mesh will be square or lozenge-shaped, according as it is distended laterally or 

longitudinally, and while in the former case it will allow any diminutive captive to pass out 

unharmed, in the latter it will inevitably catch them by the gills, no matter how small they 

may be. To avoid this misfortune, an untoward event for both parties concerned, Mr. Read 

keeps the cod of the trawl extended by a couple of hoops, whereby the lozenge is converted 

into the square, and the young fish are saved from useless and wasteful destruction. But then, 

it is urged, the mesh when distended is not strong enough to bear a strain ; and the square, 

giving more room diagonally than longitudinally, favours the flat fish more than the round, 

which require the greater protection. Hereupon Mr. Morris comes forward with his circular 

mesh of wire which does not yield to the pressure and possesses the advantage of having 

the same space of aperture in every direction. Nor is the application of machinery by any 

means confined to the apparatus immediately forming part of a smack's outfit. Gas engines 

are needed in various ways, such as the Bissehop Engine, which pumps six tons of water into 

the supply tanks of the fishponds at Ringwood in the course of one hour, for twopence. 

Portable forges are in use on board steam trawlers, fitted with sentinel valves, which by giving 

warning at a certain temperature call the attention of the fisherman who may be otherwise 

occupied at the moment. 

The construction of fish barrels affords a large field for mechanical contrivances, and the 
ingenious set of special herring-barrel machines exhibited by Messrs. A. Ransome and Co. 
of Chelsea, are a great centre of attraction. These machines which are kept in full operation, 
produce better barrels than it is possible to make by hand, at about one-third of the cost 
for labour. The machines, which are very simple, are all worked by unskilled boys' labour, 
and work up the rough sawn staves into finished casks and heads, leaving nothing to be done 
by hand but to place the heads in their grooves at the ends of the barrel, and to fix on the ' 
wooden hoops. The entire plant, which stands on a space of 34 ft., by 17 ft. is capable of 
producing 1000 full sized pickle barrels a week. 

Of a different class are Messrs. Bateman's devices for self-lubrication where small 
cylinders of metaline being set into the bushes of the ship blocks, save endless labour by 
keeprng them automatically lubricated, while their gray emery wheel, being composed of 

Great Britain Machinery in Motion. 81 

silicate of soda instead of oxydised oil, is not liable to glaze under friction, Then, 
again, refrigeration is a matter which has taxed the brains of many mechanicians. Provision 
has been made during some years for the storage and manufacture of ice on board our 
trawling vessels, but the cold air method is of more recent invention. The dry air 
refrigerator shown by Messrs. Haslam, in which the air being first condensed in the top 
cylinder to about 40 Ibs. to the square inch and then cooled by the action of water from 
without, discharges a volume of air amounting to no less than 40,000 cubic feet per hour 
at an average temperature of 40 below zero. So many, in fact, are the varieties of apparatus 
that we can scarcely enumerate the objects for which they are designed. If the water 
be too shallow at the bar of a harbour, Messrs. Priestman with their steam dredge are at 
hand to come to our assistance, while Mr. Thomas presents us with a model of a harbour, so 
constructed as to make the out-going tide completely overpower the incoming one, and with 
the additional assistance of his submarine self-acting dredge sweep away the bar and prevent 
it from re-forming. Thus we may hope to apply in a different sense the well-known words of 
Mr. Kingsley and " bid good-bye to th bar and its moaning," and to all the loss and sorrow 
which it has occasioned. If on our voyage we are caught in a fog, and in spite of our siren a 
collision becomes imminent, Messrs. Lafargue suggest an hydraulic gear for steering by which 
the largest ship can be instantaneously placed upon any course we may desire. If our vessel 
is a wreck, and the long boat requires to be launched, the old familiar danger that its crowded 
contents will be poured headlong into the angry waves is obviated by such gear as is shown by 
Commander Mark Robinson, wherein the common hook is combined with a slipping apparatus 
and the simple loosing of a rope instantaneously disconnects the couplings fore and aft at th 
same time. If we are so fortunate as to require no such apparatus, but arrive unharmed in 
port, machinery meets us once more, and Messrs. Clarke-Brummers hydraulic lift is put 
into requisition for bringing the fish ashore. Or to take an instance which shows into what 
minute details the use of machinery has entered most persons who have been at sea must be 
aware of the action which the saline air is apt to exercise upon metallic articles, and it is no 
bad measure of the height to which refinement has now been carried in these matters that a 
point of this kind has received the special attention of Mr. Gorer, of the Gilding and Silvering 
Company, 29 Edgware Road, London. 

On the other hand the electrical devices and the meagreness of the appliances adopted 
for saving life betray the crude and unfinished character of the most elaborately-fitted fishing 
vessel. Yet here, too, is a field which must by no means pass unnoticed. Here are the 
ingenious appliances of electricity exhibited by Messrs. Whiting, which, not to speak of their 
possible power of subduing whales and other large fish with no more difficulty than occurs 
with horses, are capable, from the peculiar power they possess of contracting the diaphragm 
and thereby causing the great desideratum of artificial respiration, of being applied with 
admirable effect in resuscitating the half-drowned fishermen. Nor must we overlook the 
simple machinery shown by Messrs. Shields for calming the troubled sea by means of oil ; 
nor the luminous paint, which shines calmly amid the wildest drenchings of the tempest ; 
or the asbestos, which preserves a wooden hull intact from the fiercest onslaught of fire and 
petroleum ; or the Messrs. Bapty's invention for establishing communication between light- 
ships and fishing fleets ; or Colonel Lambart's raft, which can be thrown overboard in any 
fashion ; or Messrs. Berthon's compressible and easily stowed lifeboats ; or Messrs. Went- 
worth's Kredemnon life-saving dresses, which scarcely encumber the wearer more than 
ordinary dress, and yet can defy the utmost power of the waves ; or the helm signals, 
which indicate at the mast-head every motion of the rudder ; or even the well-known basket 
and rocket apparatus for the conveyance of shipwrecked mariners ashore, which the Board of 
Trade exhibits daily. No matter connected with these interests can be of greater urgency, 
not merely as a matter of sentiment but also of economy, than the preservation of the valuable 
lives engaged in the service. Yet when the members of the Royal Commission held last year 
suggested that cork jackets should be assumed by all persons on board the fishing fleet at a 
signal given by the admiral or by the captain of the steam cutter, the proposal was finally 
abandoned on account of the reluctance which the witnesses declared would be felt by the 
fishermen in taking even so simple a precaution against obvious danger. If the present 
Exhibition has no other effect than that of preserving a single life by removing this childish 
though not unnatural fear of imputed cowardice, it will not have been held in vain.

Yet, numerous and grave as are the deficiencies in these important respects, it is impossible 
to review even the brief investigation in which we have been engaged without perceiving that 
in more ways than we can appreciate, the use of machinery is tending to complicate the imme- 
morial simplicity of fishing, and this is a point of the utmost significance to those who have at 
heart the welfare of our fishermen. For if there be one axiom inculcated beyond all others 
by the general history of trade, it is that unless the economic keep pace with the mechanical 
machinery, the latter will tend constantly to increase the advantages of capital relatively to 
those of labour. For machinery, as we have seen, involves capital, and capital presupposes the 
almost insuperable advantage that it can afford to wait. Thus to the decay of the medieval 
guilds, those close but strictly co-operative corporations, may be traced no small portion of the 
convulsions experienced in the industrial world consequent upon the enormous increase of 
commerce during the last and the present centuries ; and the strikes and lock-outs, whereby the 
respective bodies of artisans and proprietors have beaten each other into some acknowledgment 
of the rights of each, form but an inefficient and unstable substitute for the organisation which 
blended the two elements in harmonious growth. Signs are not wanting that a similar 
atrophy may be setting in with regard to this industry also. The system of apprenticeship, 
which, whether good bad or indifferent, at all events preserved the distinctiveness of the 
pursuit, is fast becoming extinct. Casuals take the place of seamen for a voyage or two, and 
then return to their own occupations on shore. Complaints are heard on every side that the 
owners of vessels experience continual loss through the refusal of the hands to fulfil their 
legitimate engagements. These are all symptoms that the economical machinery of distribution 
hag not kept pace in development with the mechanical machinery of production; and the very 
improvements to which we now point in triumph as evidence of increased prosperity may 
prove, unless accompanied by a corresponding advance in the condition of our fishermen, to be 
the instruments whereby we may come to lose that hardy and invaluable race for ever.

FlSS-CtJLTtJRE in the last quarter of a century has developed aims which remove it very far 
from the fish-culture of the past. The object of modern pisciculture is to preserve the balance 
of fish life against the disturbing agencies of modern civilization, by affording, through 
close and accurate study, a safe basis for legislative enactments, and by restoring the 
already depopulated waters to more than their pristine wealth. Modern fish-culture embraces 
alike sea and land ; ancient fish-culture, with the exception of a few brackish lagoons, com- 
prised freshwater only. If however Diodorus Siculus is to be trusted, fish-culture flourished 
3400 years ago, on a commercial scale which rivals any modern industry, as he mentions an 
artificial lake constructed by Moeris, where the revenue derived from the fishing exceeded a 
talent a day ; and the fish increased so fast that the preparations for salting were insufficient. 
Passing to China and Japan, fish-culture has long been carried on, but I am not aware that 
it extends beyond the collection and sale of spawn, and the artificial feeding of young fry, 
although the telescope fish has undoubtedly become a permanent variety through artificial 
selection. Roman fish culture consisted in constructing stews, more for the gratification of 
luxury than for increasing the food of the country. In medieval times the institution of 
the monastries again encouraged fish-culture ; and it is probable we owe to the monks our 
grayling and our coregonus, and very likely our pike also; but in their time .the great 
necessity for fish-culture had not arisen. The rivers were still unpolluted and the seas 
undisturbed. That the bays, estuaries, and sheltered parts of the coast may in the 
immediate future be systematically cropped with crabs and lobsters, and with oysters and 
edible molluscse that smelts may swarm in our estuaries, and the deep-sea cod be artificially 
increased is part of the object of modern pisciculture. In fresh water the important problem 
of the culture of the salmonidse has within the last few years been solved. The discovery of 
Pinchon, in the fourteenth century, the work of Jacobi in the eighteenth, and again, the 
observations of Gehen and Remy in the latter part of the first half of the present century, 
paved the way for the establishment of Huningue ; while M. Veraskie's notebook in the autumn 

Great Britain Class IV. Aquaria. 87 

of 1856 for ever set at rest all difficulties as to artificial impregnation, although probably 
fifteen years elapsed before his dry method was adopted out of Kussia ; and to Mr. George 
Sheppard Page the credit is due of making known M. Veraskie's experiments in America. 
Results on that continent may perhaps best be expressed by quoting a letter from Professor 
Spencer Baird, Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries, Washington, to the Commissioner of 
Fisheries of Canada. "In the Sacramento Eiver we are absolutely certain of our ground, 
" having brought up the supply of salmon to more than its pristine condition of abundance, 
" by planting about two millions of young fish every year. The catch there has increased 
" in five years from five million (5,000,000) pounds to fifteen million (15,000,000) pounds ; 
" and in 1881 there was more fish than could be utilized in all the canning establishments on 
"the river.'* One of the most important points in the study of fish-culture is the selection 
of the most suitable fish for the purpose in view, and the acclimatisation of new species, to be 
permanently beneficial, requires great knowledge and care. The cultivation of the food of 
fishes in fresh water, and its study in salt, will we hope receive great stimulus from this 
Exhibition. In both branches there is a rich harvest to be gathered. The migrations of 
many species of sea fish depending principally and the quantities of fresh water fish a 
given space will carry depending entirely on the feeding. Salmon depend on. their spawning 
rivers for quantity, and on their sea-feeding for size and quality. Oysters frequently thrive 
and fatten best under conditions unfavourable to their reproduction, hence the kindred 
problems of increasing the supply of salmon and of oysters have something in common, and 
in future will be largely dependent on artificial culture for their production, and on careful 
legislation for their increase and development. Salmon ladders will always continue necessary 
aids to sport, but the rapid strides with which artificial breeding is advancing will prevent 
their insufficiency telling much longer on our food supply. France, already at the head of 
oyster culture, is again moving in the matter of pisciculture ; and M. Chabot-Karlin, in tho 
Bulletin du Ministere de 1'Agriculture, 1882, reports on the project of forming sixteen chairs of 
pisciculture throughout France, and in the first bulletin for 1883 he reports that in Belgium 
the government has, by the creation of a vast piscicultural establishment, commenced the 
restocking of the Meuse Superieure that in the grand duchy of Luxemburg the best 
practical results in Europe have been obtained that in Germany success has been obtained 
by official encouragement to private societies, of which that of Metz offers a valuable model 
that Holland, by a system of prizes for stocking waters, has produced the best results, and, 
through its concessions of the public domain, has carried oyster culture to the highest point 
in Europe. Of the countries not mentioned in the report Norway and Sweden are fully 
alive to the value of pisciculture; Austria also possesses many establishments. Russia has 
long given much study to fish-culture: the inspector of fisheries in Finland, Professor 
Malmgren, has just issued an important report. Salmonidse have been successfully introduced 
into India, first by Professor Day, and to the Antipodes by Messrs. Francis Francis and Youl. 
It requires only the collection and ' distribution of the knowledge of the world's work in 
fish-culture as we hope it will be collected and distributed through this Exhibition to 
make an acre of water more valuable than an acre of land, and the toilers of the sea reap 
many fold their present harvest. 


IT was not until the Executive Committee of the International Fisheries Exhibition became 
aware of the immense size which it was rapidly attaining, and of the vast national, not to 
speak of international importance with which the undertaking had become invested, that 
the idea of erecting a series of sea and fresh-water aquaria was practically taken into 
consideration. Nor was it after either the first or second anxious discussion that the 
Committee felt justified in incurring the large outlay and truly gigantic amount of labour, 
both theoretical and practical, which the task of building even a small aquarium under 
favourable conditions necessitates. A very little thought will suffice to realize how arduous 
and varied were the duties which by such a resolution the Executive Committee under- 
took. Their first act was to select a Sub-Committee formed of those gentlemen who were not 
only eminently qualified and capable, but also willing to plan and execute the best system 
y which the numerous difficulties caused by an unsuitable locality could be most easily 
combated. The list of this Committee included the following well-known names, who have 

88 Of eat Britain Class IV. Aquaria. 

laboured hard since October last to carry out the work which now speaks for itself: Sir 
James Ramsay Gibson Maitland, Bart., T. J. Mann, Esq., Col. Stuart Wortley, A. G. 
Jardine, Esq., Francis Day, Esq., W. Fell Woods, Esq., Oldham Chambers, Esq., J. T. 
Carrington, Esq., and Henry Lee, Esq. 

After the closest inspection of the portions of the gardens available for the purpose, 
the Committee ultimately decided upon the present position, known generally as the West 
Arcade, for several weighty reasons, such as solidity of foundation, existence of a heavy 
concrete roof, and the immunity conferred upon it by its position from the rays of a summer 
sun, which would have acted seriously on the temperature of the water, while the presence of 
spacious cellarage at the southern end afforded the means of procuring a large reservoir for 
the storage of the necessary sea water. Although the period for which it is proposed to keep 
the Exhibition open for is only six months, yet the Committee have had all the work in 
connection with the tanks executed in the best materials, so that there may not be any 
chance of those small leaks which have proved such deep sources of trouble in nearly every 
existing aquarium. In carrying out the work the Committee have had the benefit of the 
great experience of Mr. H. C. Norman, of the firm of Messrs. Leete, Edwards and Norman, 
of Euston Road, in conjunction with whom he has superintended the fitting up of the 
vulcanite circulation system to the principal existing aquaria. The brickwork is entirely of 
the best brick fixed in cement, and was set under the personal supervision of Mr. Wilson 
Bennison, who, in connection with the late Major-General Scott, C.B., has most efficiently 
carried out the arduous task of erecting the Exhibition buildings. In order to meet the 
demands of numerous exhibitors, and to enable them to make the Aquarium thoroughly 
representative, the Committee found that it would be necessary to build nineteen tanks for 
sea and fresh water, and twenty smaller table tanks for sea water alone. As the appearance 
of these tanks when merely finished off with asphalte and slate, respectively, appeared to the 
Committee to be somewhat unattractive, they determined to face them with rock-work, and 
found in Mr. Pulham, of Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, a talented and willing contractor, who, 
in spite of the difficulties which are caused by the use of lime in any active form, has executed 
his work with much taste and skill at a merely nominal cost. The water for the sea-water tanks 
has been obtained direct from Brighton, and has been supplied by Messrs. Hudson & Co., of 
Pimlico, whose extensive plant, employed for the sea-water supply to the Crystal Palace and 
Westminster Aquarium, obviates the danger of any impurities being brought into contact 
with the sea-water in transit. The total bulk of water in circulation through the ten large 
and twenty small sea-water tanks and reservoirs is upwards of 65,000 gallons, and the entirety 
was conveyed from Brighton to South Kensington at a fixed rate of 5000 gallons per day. 
The remaining nine large tanks are fresh-water tanks, and to prevent the fish being exposed 
to the variations of quality and temperature of the ordinary West Middlesex Water Company's 
supply, the Committee have availed themselves of the kind offer of Messrs. Atkins & Co., 
Sanitary Engineers, of 62 Fleet Street, to place .at their disposal one of their large 
water-softening and filtering apparatus, which will, as the fresh-water tanks are provided 
with underneath reservoirs, allow of the same water being kept continuously in circulation, and 
will of itself prove a great saving in expense, besides benefiting the fish. The question of 
stocking an aquarium being one of great difficulty and also expense, Lord Walsingham, who 
has presented 1000 freshwater fish of various kinds, the Duke of Bedford several species 
of carp and other fish, the Marquis of Exeter trout and black bass, the Duke of Portland 
trout, Sir James G. Maitland trout, and numerous others, have by their generous gifts tended 
very greatly to mitigate the arduous task of the Stocking Committee, who have yet had to 
use every endeavour to arrange for an adequate amount of seawater fish and .Crustacea. 
In order to procure an independent supply of the former, the Committee engaged the services 
of a smack-owner to trawl for them in the Channel for three weeks ; and as the managers 
of the Brighton Aquarium kindly consented to receive and store the takes of fish in their 
spare tanks, so as to give them a break in the voyage from Brighton to the Exhibition, the 
Committee have been enabled to stock their tanks with, so to speak, partially educated fish. 
As regards Crustacea, the Committee are indebted to Messrs. Poland Brothers, of Billingsgate, 
who have supplied them with a very fine exhibit of lobster, crabs and crayfish ; and Messrs. 
Lynn and Gibson, who display an appetising show of shrimps, prawns, and other Crustacea. 
Another, and perhapg almost the mogt attractive, branch of the Aquaria is that which 

^_ Great Britain^-Divisions XXXY. t XXXVl.West Arcade. 89 

6ontains the anemones, for the finest specimens of which the Committee are again indebted 
to the Directors of the Brighton Aquarium, who have given every assistance to procure a 
thorough and handsome collection. It will be well, perhaps, for those visitors who take any 
interest beyond mere curiosity in an aquarium to try and realise for a few moments the 
seemingly overwhelming difficulties which appear to crop up on all sides to those who 
undertake the formation of one. So numerous are the questions which have individually to 
receive the deepest discussion, that it is quite impossible to consider them in a short preface ; 
but it may be as well to mention some of the few principal ones. The first question is the 
quantity, quality, and direction of the supply of light, which, if not of the most perfect and 
direct kind, will entirely prevent the finest aquarium from ever becoming a success. Second 
only in importance are the questions of foundation and drainage, as the slightest error in 
either of these causes not only leaks in masonry, but signs the death-warrant of the costly 
plate glasses. Next the temperature and quality of the water to be used give a vast amount 
of anxiety, and when, in spite of all difficulties, the naturalist has erected for himself an 
aquarium, and the tanks appear to be in the highest degree satisfactory, he has the disappoint- 
ment of learning that the light which he has been so assiduously arranging for the benefit 
of the public is a deadly enemy to the fish. These are merely the larger troubles, and as 
such sufficient to prove to the visitors' mind the public thanks which are due on all sides to 
those who lend all their science, knowledge, and energy for the public good.

749. GAIL, RICHARD, Newcastle-on-Tyne. Gail's Lock Swimming 
Salmon Pass. This system of pass enables the heaviest spawn-laden salmon to surmount any 
obstacle in rivers, such as natural falls, dams, or weirs of any height, even to 100 feet or more, 
by swimming through it in unbroken water from the lower to the upper water, without 
fatigue, exposure, or having to leap. The quantity of water to work this pass is small, self- 
acting, and regulated exactly to suit itself to any height of the water in the river in freshes or 
floods. The velocity of the water does not increase as it descends, and in each lock is nearly 
quiescent and purls about, imposing no exertion on the fish, and as fish and water are the same 
specific gravity, they can ascend 100 ft. easier than a man can ascend the same height by a stair.

Great Britain Natural History. 97 


WHEN investigating fisheries, their present uses and the benefits which might be derived 
from them, the inquirer soon becomes conscious of the necessity of studying many branches 
of "natural history," both in the vegetable and animal kingdoms, without a competent 
knowledge of which his labours will often be thrown away, or the results of his researches useless, 
if not positively misleading. Fisheries are variously regarded by different classes ; thus the fisher- 
man,"chiefly concerns himself as to what he can obtain from them at the present time, regardless 
of suitable provisions for the next year's supply. The public mainly interest themselves in 
the cost of the fish as disposed of for food ; while the scientific economist bases his conclu- 
sions respecting the value of fisheries in accordance with their produce, and should the supply 
be unequal to the demand he mostly advocates increased killing powers by the employment 
of more destructive agencies, erroneously believing that the stock in the sea is inexhaustible. 
The naturalist and fish culturist ought to approach the question from an entirely different 
point of view ; he should ascertain the life-history of all forms of fishes, not merely such as 
serve for human food, but also of those which form the sustenance of the more predaceous 
kinds. He should endeavour to collect reliable information respecting the plants and animals 
which afford them sustenance and shelter, as well as ascertain what are their enemies or 
their friends, and what conditions favour the presence or absence of either class. Irre- 
spective of the foregoing, he should consider the relationship of temperature, currents, soils 
and the various conditions of the water in which they reside, to their migrations, growth 
health, and reproduction. He should also ascertain whether fish are increasing in numbers 
decreasing, or if the supply remains unchanged ; if the size of those captured is augmenting 
or lessening; if their condition is better or worse than it was. Should investigations lead 
him to conclude that fisheries are being unduly depleted, he should carefully note in what 
families of fish such is occurring, if possible the cause, while in marine forms it is likewise 
necessary to inquire if fishermen have to go further out to sea to obtain their captures, if 
the killing powers of their implements have increased, and whether more men are now required 
to obtain the same amount of fish than was the case a few years previously. Lastly, it may bo 
observed that, unless the investigator is able to distinguish the various species, he may easily 
imagine that he sees in some small forms, as the solonette (Solea minuta), the young of the 
more valuable kinds, as the common sole (8. vulgaris), whereas he is merely examining one 
sort that is worthless, except as food for the larger kinds. Our fresh-water fishes are divisible 
into the river or " fluviatile " and the " lacustrine " or lake forms, while our marine ones may be 
considered as shore or " littoral " and "pelagic "or sea species; these last being again sub- 
divided into such as are generally found near the surface, at greater or mid-depths, and abyssal 
residents, or such as live in the deep sea, below the limits to which the sun's rays penetrate. 
Fresh-water fishes may be permanent residents therein, as carps ; " anadromous," or merely 
visitants from the ocean for the purpose of depositing their spawn, and generally, but not 
invariably, leaving their young to be reared there, as the salmon : " catadromous," or such as 
reside in fresh waters, visiting the littoral zone or sea in order to breed, as eels, the young of 
which ascend into and are reared in our rivers. To meet the destructive agencies to 
which the eggs and young are subjected, fish are provided with a large amount of ova, 
which is mostly sufficient to counterbalance natural waste. Thus eleven millions of eggs 
have been taken from a 21-lb. codfish ; 550,000, from a mackerel ; 239,775, from a 4-lb. 
brill; while a salmon deposits about 800 for every pound's weight of the parent fish. 
Although most forms are polygamous, some are monogamous. The period of the year at 
which spawning occurs, the size of the eggs, the depth of water in which they are deposited, 
the time they take incubating, and the places selected for the ova are exceedingly varied. 
The eggs of cod float in the sea until the young^ emerge, those of the herring sink to the 
bottom, where by means of a glutinous substance they are attached to sea-weeds, rocks and 
other objects ; those of some species of flat fishes float so long as the water is agitated, subsiding 
when it is smooth. One form of sea-sucker (Lepidogaster) affixes its eggs to the inside of a 
dead shell as a butterfly does to a leaf. The gar fish (l?eZoe)has filaments springing from the 
outer covering of its ova, which enables them to adhere together in a mass or attach themselves 
t$ contiguous substances. Anadromous forms deposit their eggs in running waters, but in

different ways ; thus the smelt affixes its ova to planks, stones, &c., near high-water mark ; the 
salmon and trout cover theirs with gravel, while the grayling deposits it on the bed of the river. 
Perch and most carps attach their eggs to water-weeds, sticklebacks construct a nest, while in 
the tufted gilled fishes, represented by the pipe- and horse-fishes, the male undertakes the 
functions of a nurse, the eggs for this purpose, up to the period of the evolution of the young, 
being retained between the ventral fins, as in certain pipefishes (Solenostomus), in tail pouches 
as in horse-fishes (Hippocampus}, or in receptacles on tne breast or abdomen as in the pipe- 
fish (Daryrhamplius), or merely in two rows in the same position as in Nerophis. The males 
of some tropical sheat fishes or Siluroids also perform maternal duties by carrying the eggs 
about in their mouths until the young are hatched. In some forms, as lampreys, the expulsion 
of the roe is mechanically assisted by the two parents fixing their sucker-like mouths to a 
convenient rock and entwining themselves round one another. Also in carps, as in the 
common goldfish, the male has been observed to roll the female over and over at the bottom 
of an aquarium until her eggs have become expelled. Hybrid fishes are likewise deserving 
of great attention, as in fish culture crosses between the trout and the charr have proved 
most successful, while the stocking of fresh waters by artificial means, and latterly the sea. 
are among the most satisfactory accomplishments of modern fish culturists and naturalists. 
Young fishes for varying periods after birth are sustained by the nutriment contained 
in the yolk of the egg or dependent umbilical sac, and during this period they have numerous 
enemies watching to make them their prey. Unable to stem strong currents, they are 
generally to be found concealed near the sides of streams or ponds, or else under the shade 
of stones, leaves of water plants and grasses ; while the marine species are among the algae 
in the sea, or disporting themselves in the sunshine, and these places may be considered 
their nurseries, which should not only be left . undisturbed, but protected from predaceous 
foes. As the yolk sac becomes absorbed, the fry of fish have to seek for their food, whether of 
a minute vegetable or animal character, and it is then that the eggs and young of other lower 
classes of animals (the invertebrata) become invaluable for their subsistence. In some places 
around our coasts or in fresh or brackish waters are various kinds of sea- weeds or algas which in 
the sea decrease in abundance with increasing depth, or should they drift into deep water 
they fall to pieces, sink and form the basis of soft black mud in which many forms of inverte- 
brates find their food, while in their turn they afford sustenance for fishes. Besides sea- weeds 
being useful along our coasts as providing food for fishes, places for depositing their spawn, 
nurseries for sheltering and rearing the fry, there are likewise forms some of which are micro- 
scopic, floating in vast quantities over the surface of the deep sea, as the so-called Sargassum or 
gulf weed. Sponges, in both their fresh-water and marine kinds, and which equally belong to 
the group Protozoa, were long considered by some authors to be vegetable, by others to be 
animal organisms. The horny skeletons of some species are exceedingly useful for domestic 
purposes, while those of commerce are to a great extent brought from the Grecian Archipelago, 
the Bed Sea and the Bahamas, where they are obtained by divers. Many of the Ccelenterata, as 
the compound colonies of the fixed and plant like sea firs (Sertularidai) and their allies, are 
found in our seas, some in large quantities, and they are consumed by fish and other marine 
animals. There are also in this group the jelly-fishes, medusae, which during the summer and 
autumn months are found floating in the ocean around our coasts, and occasionally under their 
umbrella-like discs young fish have been observed to obtain refuge from the pursuit of their 
enemies. Corals among the Actinozoa in many ways hold a most important place, while their 
hard structures are exceedingly diversified and interesting. Commercial forms are principally 
obtained from the Mediterranean, the Red Sea, Persian and Arabian Gulfs, the Mauritius, the 
Islands of the Malay Archipelago, Japan, &c. ; while the reef-constructing species are distri- 
buted, and can only exist where the mean temperature of the sea is not below 66. The coral 
reefs are classed as forming Fringing reefs, Barrier reefs and Atolls. These reefs are largely 
frequented by fish, some of which possess most gorgeous colours, biit in many instances it 
has been obsef ved that the flesh of those obtained from such localities is frequently poisonous. 
Among the jointed Annuloida the term entozoa has been frequently used for the purpose 
of designating internal parasites. Epizoa on the other hand is the term employed for certain 
small Crustaceans which, in their adult stage are likewise parasitic upon the exterior of fish ; 
they possess; a suctorial mouth and limbs furnished with hooks, suckers or bristles. Mollusca, 

Great Britain Natural History. 99 

or soft-bodied animals, commonly known as shellfish, constitute a most important class in the 
economy of fisheries, not merely in their providing adult fish with food, but also as some of 
them breed at the same period of the year, their eggs and microscopic young are useful as 
aliment to the fish fry. Some forms are likewise more directly employed by man as food 
and bait, as oysters, mussels, cockles, and periwinkles. The consumer needs no reminder as 
to how scarce the first have become ; and along the east coast of Scotland mussels for use 
as bait are attaining famine prices, while the belief appears to be almost general that there 
mussel fisheries are retrograding. Many other forms of molluscs are much employed by line 
fishermen for bait, especially whelks, squids, cuttle-fishes, &c. Among the marine Echine- 
derms, viz. sea-urchins, star-fishes, and the sea-cucumbers, Holothuridse, all assist more or 
less in providing food for fish, while a species of the last is largely consumed as food in 
China, where it is looked upon as a luxury under the name of " trepang." The true worms 
or Annelides are indispensable to fisheries. They are divisible into the abranchiata, or gill-less 
forms, which contain earth-worms and leeches, and the branchiata, or gilled kinds, which 
include tube-worms and sand-worms, &c. The Annelids comprise many forms largely employed 
as food for fish, and some, as the lob-worm, are very useful for bait ; others, as leeches, are 
detrimental to fish. Insects have been said to be nature's most favoured creation, having 
combined in them all that is beautiful and graceful, interesting and alluring, or curious and 
singular in every other class of her (nature's) productions. They are placed by entomologists 
in three great divisions, in accordance with whether they pass through a metamorphosis or 
not, and if they do whether such is complete or incomplete. Many insects form food for 
fishes in some stage of their existence, while others are very destructive to fish eggs. Crus- 
tacea are most generally known as lobsters, crabs, shrimps, prawns, &c., and are variously 
divided by different zoologists. All Crustacea are water breathers ; some having eyes placed 
upon footstalks, while in others they are without stalks, being sessile or immovable. All 
undergo successive moultings or changes of shell, at which times lost parts become renewed. 
In the earlier stages of the lowei crustaceans, they emerge from the egg as a small body, having 
a central eye and two pairs of limbs (so-called Zoea stage), while as they gradually attain the 
adult stage new segments and new limbs appear. In their earlier stages Crustacea become 
a most important article of food for fishes, while their adult forms are likewise esteemed by 
the more predaceous kinds. The class of Amphibia comprises newts, frogs and toads, and in 
some localities frogs play a not unimportant part in fisheries, as they not only devour the ova 
but likewise the fry, while their own spawn in turn becomes food for fish, and a frog is highly 
esteemed by many fresh-water fishes. Keptiles (or Keptilia), including tortoises, turtles, terra- 
pins, snakes, lizards, crocodiles and alligators, are more destructive to fish than are the true 
amphibians. The Chelonians are usually divided into the swimming turtles, the mud turtles or 
soft tortoises, and the terrapins, and lastly tke land tortoises. Some of the snakes and serpent 
are frequently found in fresh water, where they are inimical to fish ; while in the seas of hot 
climates are the venomous water-snakes (Hydrophidae) ; these have a laterally flattened tail, 
lead an aquatic life, and live mostly on fish. Crocodiles and alligators abound in the fresh and 
brackish waters of hot countries and are large consumers of fish, but the form best adapted for 
this pursuit is perhaps the gavial of India, which often attains to twenty feet in length, and is 
a resident throughout the Indus, Ganges, Brahmaputra and Mahanuddi rivers. The gavial 
possess a'long and slender snout with a narrow mouth, they toss captured fish into the air, 
and as they descend catch them and swallow them head first. Among birds, as is well known, 
not only are the swimming ones, as the gannets, cormorants, gulls and terns of our coast 
largely destructive to sea fish, but the last two extend their range to inland waters, where, 
however, the dabchicks, coots, moorhens, herons, &c., assist in depopulating fisheries. Among 
mammals the whale and seal fisheries are of great importance commercially. The whales, 
dolphins, and porpoises or Cetacea themselves destroy immense quantities of fish. So also do 
the semi-aquatic or amphibious seals ; while the otter in fresh and brackish waters is a large 
fish consumer, although in the east it appears mostly to prefer frogs.

This small sessile-eyed crustacean, first noticed by Leach, resembles in outward appearance a gigantic wood- 
louse, is about an inch and a half in length, of a light crab-like colour, and with a hard crustaceous covering. It 
abounds on certain long lanes or channels with a sandy bottom, on which the fishermen never shoot their lines 
unless in foggy weather when unable to get their bearings. Should they do so all the ling, tusk or cod they may 
catch are rendered useless by the bees, which, when a fish is hooked, "get on to it in myriads, enter in at the gills 
(as they evidently cannot pierce the skin) and detour all but skin and bone, so that when the fish is hauled up it 
looks as plump and round as a live fish, only when they come to open it, it is found to be quite full of bees and 
nothing else." Skate and halibut they do not seem to attack, probably because these fish keep their gill covers 
closed when hooked. -'The fishermen have sometimes taken a few of these live bees, put them into a vessel, with 
salt water, dropped a piece of fish in, and immediately all rushed to it, and clung fast until it was devoured."

period anterior to its elevation. No trace of metals have been found, but the occurrence of 
numerous flint chips, &c., carry it back evidently to the neolithic age. Of objects, showing 
unmistakable traces of human use and agency, there are ten fish-spear or harpoon heads of 
bone, and one butt ; also numerous rubbed bones, chisels, borers or awls, and picks of the 
same material. Also lap and hammer-stones, rubbed stones, limpet hammers, &c. Also 
several shells, evidently trimmed for use as spoons, pierced for suspension, &c In addition to 
the usual edible shellfish, the shells of which occur in large quantities, there are also remains 
of the Rorqual, Seal, Eed Deer, Otter, and other mammals ; of the Mullet, Wrasse, picked 
Dogfish, Skate, &c. Among the aquatic birds are included bones of the now extinct Great

Great Britain Division L VI. History of Fishing. 119 


THE history and literature of fish and fisheries form in themselves a veritable ocean, the 
inhabitants of which are of the most varied nature, from the chatty pages of Walton to the' 
useful but scarcely inviting Tables of Parliamentary Statistics. This voluminous treatment 
may occasion surprise to persons unacquainted with the extent and intricacy of the subject ; 
but its cause will be readily perceived by any one who considers the complexity of the 
relations involved, as well as the multiplicity of species and properties. Not merely do fish 
afford one of the chief staples of human food, but they are the only denizens of the element 
which covers by far the greater portion of the earth's surface. When to these considerations it 
is added that they are apparently quite incapable of domestication, that some of the finest 
sorts soon dwindle and die out unless a perfectly free course be opened to them through river 
and ocean, that their capture is the source of innumerable jealousies, and that physical means 
can scarcely be devised for protecting piscatorial rights whether vested in communities or indi- 
viduals, the wonder arises not that so much has been written, but rather that there should be any 
end to controversy. Fishing, whether for business or pleasure, is considered by English 
people, and indeed by mankind in general, as primarily a pursuit in which all the world may 
engage wherever, whenever, or however they please ; and the only limitations to its exercise 
have their origin either in a defective right of access to the waters or in the necessity to 
preserve a continuance of supply. Thus on the high seas every one may catch whatever fish 
they can with whatever means they are able to employ, so long, of course, as they do not inter- 
fere with the superior right of navigation. On the other hand, it is clear that when a coast is 
approached, certain rights over the adjacent waters must naturally belong to the people of 
the country; so that foreigners cannot exercise their occupation within some conventional 
distance (three miles from low-water mark in the point determined) without licence from 
the Government. Hence arises immediately the necessity for international agreement, and 
one of the earliest conventions between Great Britain and the newly acknowledged American 
States, had regard to the fisheries of Newfoundland. Direct piscatorial rights, too, are by 
no means the only objects of diplomatic intervention in these matters ; and not 'many years 
have elapsed since the position of seamen in distress, and the distribution of their estates, 
when deceased, became regulated by Treaty between our own Government and those respec- 
tively of Germany and Italy. Kivers, again, in so far as they are navigable, are open to all 
natives of the country through which they run ; but where access can only be obtained from the 
banks, both they and the fish contained in them are considered to belong to the riparian pro- 
prietors. Angling, it may be here observed, stands upon precisely the same footing as net 
fishing, except that the open season is protracted for a short time in order to balance in some 
degree the nights and unfavourable days during which nets only can take effect, and that 
trespassers with the rod are liable to rather lighter fines. The duration of the period during 
which fishing is prohibited for fear of injury to the spawn, has caused endless discussion and 
legislation; while the construction of wears or weirs has been a fertile source of dispute 
since the days of Magna Charta at the very least. The regulations upon, these subjects 
are altogether miscellaneous, not to say conflicting, and vary both with the species and the 
locality. Salmon indeed, like the house of Courtenay, is so lordly in its nature, and so migra- 
tory in its habits, as to require nothing less than a chapter of history all to itself. But the 
herring, said to have been introduced into England by Cerdric, in the days of Bomulus 
Augustulus, can boast of a lengthened pedigree, and the royal whale lays claim to no slight 
consideration. In fact, if any one desired to become familiar with the history of this extensive 
branch of the animal kingdom, it is necessary that he should acquaint himself not only with 
the haunts and habits of the fish, but also with the Treaties, Charters, Acts and Kegulations, 
whereby the original freedom of universal piscatory has been abridged in accordance with 
international, municipal, or special declaration,^ The theme is by no means dry or wanting 
in those glimpses of national character which give colour to historical research. In classic 
times piscatorial rights, both public and private, were commonly recognised, as is shown by 
the allusions of satirists, and the numerous technical terms in use. At Pompeii, for example, 
if we may argue from the frescoes still extant upon the walls, angling must have been a very- 
favourite employment. Amongst our own ancestors, the Anglo Saxons fed largely oafish, but 

120 Great Britain Division LVL History of Fishing. 

the Britons are said to have refrained from them out of reverence for streams and rivers, and 
the-alleged aversion of certain large classes of the poor to this article of food may possibly be 
a survival of this notion. In the Venetian edition of the Older Salic Law, a fine is exacted 
of "MD. Denarios, XV. Solidos" for the theft of a fish. Feudalism developed the pares or 
private ponds of great seigneurs to a most elaborate extent, and the Fifth Book of the 
Ordonnances of Louis XIV. enters into very minute particulars. The Code Rurale also, pub- 
lished by Royal Privilege in 1775, contains many interesting details of a system swept away 
a few years afterwards, like so many other remnants of Feudalism, by the force of the Revo- 
lution, in which so conspicuous a part was played by the Dames de la Halle. For the 
comparative freedom with which our own arrangements have been conducted we are probably 
indebted to the existence of the celebrated Fishmongers' Company, or " Mistery of Fysshe- 
mongers," to use their ancient title. The charters of this wealthy and famous Society carry 
us back as far as Richard II. The amalgamation of the two Guilds of Stockfishmongers 
and Saltfishmongers took place in the times of the Roses : their Common Seal stills bears 
the cross-keys of their fpatron the Fisherman ; and the Fire of London is an event of yes- 
terday in their annals. Other nations may have established a commerce as extensive and 
remunerative, but seldom has such a commerce been enjoyed for so long a duration. Of the 
foreign rivals of the Company domestic they had none by far the most formidable came 
from the sea-loving country of Holland, which at one period almost succeeded in taking the 
whaling trade out of British hands. A manuscript in the Harleian collection, bearing date 
1632, contains "A discoverie of the Hollanders' Trade of Fishinge, and the circumventing us 
therein ; the means how to make a profitt of the fishinge, by which they have made and yet 
doe reape soe greate a benefitt, with the profitt, honor and securitie that will redounde to his 
Ma tle and all sorts of subjects within his Ma t three kingdomes by it. Written by Sr. Wm. 
Munson, Knt.,sometyme Vice Admiral of England, and now in agitation togeather with his Ma u 
Letters Pattents for the Execution of the same." Ninety years later a Report upon the loss 
of the Greenland. fishery was drawn up by order of Sir John Eyles, Governor of the South Sea 
Company. Of the high value placed upon the trade as regarded both from the political and 
the commercial point of view, the following passage will enable us to judge : " Is it to be 
expected," says the author of the Parliamentary History, discussing the proceedings of the 
Scottish Parliament relatively to the Union, "that Holland will suffer us to improve our 
Fishery, which is their nursery for seamen, a livelihood to many families, and an immense 
treasure to the public ? " Such are some of the incidents which illustrate and enliven this 
characteristic portion of our national life ; nor is the interest of the study by any means con- 
fined to archaeological or historical details. On the contrary many questions relating to 
our fisheries are of vital and permanent importance to large masses of the population ; and the 
welfare of the classes employed in these pursuits, the means for extending the consumption 
of fish amongst the poor, the discovery of new fishing-grounds, the acclimatization of fresh 
species, the improvement of piscatorial implements and methods, and the establishment 
of Government vessels for the better instruction of fishermen, are but a few of the innumerable 
topics relative to these matters to be found in the columns of Parliamentary Reports. And 
when the reader has become familiar with the varied story and multiform relations of this 
deeply interesting branch of the animal kingdom alike in its] scientific and commercial 
aspects, he cannot do better than pay a visit to the lecture room of the Exhibition and there 
learn how the whole of this widely reaching literature and organization is but the preliminary 
step towards the much needed development of this valuable food for the teeming and ever 
multiplying millions of our poorer population. W. M. ADAMS,

Nets (MoveaUe.) (1) Clenching Net. This net is used chiefly in floods to take fish that have 
found their way into any ditch or backwater. It is one of the most poaching nets used. (2) 
Eel Net. These nets are fixed across the river in the summer and autumn to catch eels, 
migrating seawards. They fish the middle of the river, the bottom line on the bed of 
the stream, the top a few feet below the surface, so as to let the rubbish pass over. 
They are only used when the water is high and discoloured. (3) Beating Net. Net used 
by fishermen in the freshwater. It is fastened round a bush or tree, and the water inside 
the net beaten with poles, the fish trying to escape get caught in the net. It is a trammel 
or armoured Net. (4) Lave Net. Net used by fishermen used in the estuary to take salmon 
on the sands in the shallow water. (5) Shrimp Net. Net used on the sands for taking 
shrimps and small fish. Nets (Fixed). ' (6) Stop Net. Net used in the tidal portion of the 
river. Fish ascending or descending the river strike against it. The string is pulled, 
and the fish caught in a bag. (7) Sprat Nets. Nets fixed to stakes in the tidal part of 
the river in the autumn and winter months to take sprats coming down on the ebb tide. 
Fixed Engine. (8) Putchers. Engines used in the Bristol Channel for catching Salmon. 
They are fixed in certain places in ranks, and the tide forces the fish into them. (9) Putts 
No. 1. These Putts are used at the Count Rocks, Oldbury, Gloucestershire, for taking salmon, 
shrimps, and various kinds of fish. The smaller fish get carried by the tide into the narrow 
part of the Putts. The large fish are prevented passing the Putts, and generally found in 
pools near them, (10) Putts No. 2. These putts are used on the mud near the New Passage 
Gloucestershire, for taking shrimps, small soles and sea fish. Occasionally salmon are taken 
in them, but only under exceptional circumstances. (11) Weels used on the apron of Weirs 
for taking Lamperns. Lamperns ascend the river in large numbers in the autumn and winter 
during a fresh, and then baskets are placed on the Weirs with their mouth down stream, and 
the lamperns find their way into them. (12) Eel Putchons. These are the ordinary eel 
baskets that are baited and placed in the river during the spring and summer months for eels. 
(13) Hard Weels. Large baskets in which eels and lamperns are kept alive until sold. (14)

placed as to form a well-defined entrance, and constructed in such a form as to admit additional 
wave water, and thus make the outgoing tide completely overcome the incoming one in its 
action on the bar at the mouth of any river or creek. This action, aided by the automatic 
submarine dredge, permanently sweeps away the bar and prevents it from reforming. (2) 
Model of Greenway Breakwater sheltering a lighthouse, and giving access to them at all times.

Patentees. The vehicle is supported mainly on the two hind wheels, with very elastic springs. 
On the right of the floor of the ambulance is a couch, the frame of which is supported on four 
elliptical springs, the top of the couch is in the form of a stretcher or litter, which slides in 
and draws out in grooves and on rollers fixed to the frame. The top or stretcher portion can 
be drawn out and carried to the bedside to receive a patient, and then can be slid into position 
on -the frame of the couch without shaking the patient. On the left hand inside of the 
carriage is a seat for an attendant, but it is removable, so that if two patients are required 
to be conveyed at once, a stretcher (part of the equipment of the vehicle) can be suspended 
in the loops of four straps, fixed in position for that purpose parallel with the couch, and the 
attendant can ride with the driver. There is also an iron bar provided, to fix on the rear of 
the ambulance on a level with the woodwork in front, to form a resting place for the ends 
of two ordinary police stretchers, so that in case of need, four injured persons could really be 
conveyed to the hospital.

(See Plan, p. 76.) 

THE Isle of Man is an island in the British Seas, 35 miles long and about 12 miles at 
its greatest breadth, containing an area of about 350 square miles, and a population of 
53,492 souls. The island enjoys the advantages of Home Rule. It has its own legislature, 
its own judicature, and an independent revenue. There are five ports in the island from 
which fishery operations are mainly conducted, viz., Douglas, Ramsey, Peel, Port St. Mary, 
and Port Erin. Peel is the most important of these ports. The town of Peel possesses 194 
first-class boats, measuring 5,044 tons ; 170 of these boats are supplied with full trains of 
mackerel and herring nets, and represent a total capital of 750 a boat, or 127,500. The 24 
other boats are supplied with only a herring train, and represent a capital of 550 each, or 
13,200. Peel has about 35 second-class boats, representing 200 each, or 7,000. The 
total capital embarked in the fishery at Peel is therefore 147,700. 1,727 men and boys 
are employed in the fishery. Port St. Mary, with the adjacent ports of Castletown and Port 
Erin, is the next most important. It contains 101 boats, representing a tonnage of 2,095 tons, 
with a capital of 80,800, and employing 787 men and boys. In addition, 10 boats manned 
by two men each, are employed in the southern ports of the island lobster fishing, and earn 
500. These boats are principally engaged in the spring and early summer in the Kinsale 
mackerel fishery ; in the summer and autumn, in the home and Irish herring fishery ; and 
in the winter, to a certain extent, in the] long-line fishery ; but they also go to Scotland and 
various parts of England. The earnings of the Peel boats are said to amount to Kinsale 
mackerel fishery, 42,000 ; Herring fishery, 40,000 ; Long-line fishery, 1,500 total 83,500. 
Placing the earnings of the Port St. Mary boats at the same proportion, they would amount 
to 40,500. The port of Douglas contains 11 first-class boats, 15 second-class boats, and 9 
third-class boats, having a total tonnage of 333 tons, employing 119 men and boys, and 
valued at 2,800. The larger of these boats are trawlers, and work between Liverpool and 
the island. Ramsey has 90 boats engaged in the fishery, with a tonnage of 609 tons, 
representing a value of 10,306. and employing 219 men and boys. The principal fishery 
here is the long-line fishery for cod, which extends from the beginning of October to the 
end of May. In October, November, April, and May, it is conducted in small open lug-rigged 
boats manned by 5 men ; during December, January, February, and March, the fishery is 
conducted in deep sea-fishing boats yawl-rigged, with 50 feet keel and of 50 tons burthen. 
The cod fishery thus occupies the time of the Ramsey fishermen for eight months out of 
every twelve. During the summer months four of the cod boats are engaged in fishing for 
conger on the west of the island, four of them go to Kinsale, while 64 boats, each manned by 
only one man, are engaged in fishing for mackerel. The statistics of the Ramsey fishery may 
be summarized as follows : Number of boats, 90 ; tons, 609 ; men and boys, 219 ; value, 
10,306. The yield of the Ramsey fishery is as follows : 1. Open cod boats, 1,560 ; 2. 
deep sea boats, 5,760 ; 3. Mackerel fishery, 1,344; 4. Eels, &c., fishery, 720 ; 5. Kinsale 
fishery, 1,200 ; 6. Miscellaneous, lobsters, &c., 300 total, 10,884. The capital, therefore, 
embarked in the fisheries of the Isle of Man is as follows : 1. Peel, 147,700 ; 2. Port St. 
Mary, Castletown, &c, 80,500; 3. Ramsey, 10,306; 4. Douglas, 2,800 total, 241,306. 
The people employed in fishing in the Isle of Man are as follows : 1. Peel, 1,727 ; 2. Port St. 
Mary, Castletown, <fcc., 787 ; 3. Ramsey, 219; 4. Douglas, 119; 5. Lobster fishing, 20 total, 
2,872. The yield of the Insular fisheries may be computed as follows : 1. Peel, 83,500 ; 
2. Port St. Mary, Castletown, &c., 40,500; 3. Ramsey, 10,884; 4. Douglas, 5,000; 5. 
Lobster fishing, 500 total, 140,384. In round numbers, therefore, some 250,000 is 
embarked in the fishery, while the returns are about 140,000 annuaUy. Assuming that 
10 per cent, is required annually to replace the capital, and repay the interest on it, 115,000 
is available for division among the 2,870 men and boys employed, or 1 a week for each man 
and boy for 40 weeks during .ach year. These figures do not, however, represent the whole 
value of the fisheries to the island. It will be readily understood that the fisheries indirectly

support a considerable number of persons who are engaged as boat builders, net makers, or in 
other ways for supplying the fisheries ; the boats which are built in the Isle of Man for the 
herring fishery are probably the finest and best found in the world ; 700 people, at the very 
lowest estimate, are employed in these industries. While out of a total population of rather 
more than 53,000, 2,870 men and boys, representing 11,000 people, are engaged in fishing, 
700 other people, men, women, girls, and boys, representing say a population of 2,000, are 
employed in industries dependent on fishing; 13,000 people out of a population of 53,000, are 
thus either directly or indirectly dependent on fishing for their livelihood. The Insular 
Government have of late years spent large sums of money in improving the harbours o 
the island. It is at the present moment improving the harbour at Peel, with the special 
object of improving the fishing industry, at a cost of 24,300 ; and it is constructing a new 
breakwater at Port St. Mary, at a cost of 15,580. Plans of these harbours are at the 1 
Exhibition. The Insular Government is also spending considerable sums of money in harbour 
works at Ramsey, Port Erin, and Douglas. There is no other portion of Europe, and with 
the exception of Newfoundland, there is probably no other country in the world where so 
large a proportion of the population is dependent on fishing for their livelihood. Great 
Britain is usually supposed to have the most important fisheries in the world. In Great 
Britain probably 100,000 men (say 400,000 people with their families) earn their livelihood 
by fishing ; and one person out of about every 75 is thus dependent on the fisheries. In the 
Isle of Man one -person out of every five depends on fishing for his daily bread, and one 
person out of every four is directly or indirectly dependent on fishing for a livelihood.

(See Plan, p. 140.) 

IN a tropical country, such as India, the economic value of well-stocked fisheries depends 
greatly upon two considerations. First whether a sufficient local demand for fish exists, which 
will yield a fair remuneration to the fishermen for their outlay on the necessary gear and 
labour in securing the finny tribes. Secondly, provided such demand is insufficient, whether 
facilities are present which will enable them to send their surplus captures in a marketable 
condition to more distant localities. 

Consequently it becomes necessary first to observe upon what proportion of the people of 
India and Burma consume fish as food, or rather are able to do so without infringing caste 
prejudices. In the Punjab comparatively few of the inhabitants are thus prohibited, although 
Brahmans and the rural population in some places reject it, but among the residents of hilly 
districts and towns its consumption is only limited by the paucity of the supply and the 
cost of the article. In the North-West Provinces, Haiderabad, Mysor, and Coorg, more than 
half the population are permitted by their religion to consume fish. In Oudh the majority 
can do so. In Sind nearly all except the Brahmans ; in Bombay by far the largest proportion 
of the people ; in South Canara 89 per cent. ; in Madras the majority, the exceptions being 
Brahmans, Goldsmiths, high-caste Sudras, the followers of Siva, Jains, &c. ; in Orissa more 
than half the people ; in Bengal proper from 90 to 95 per cent. ; in Assam and Chittagong 
almost the entire population, and in Burma in the form of Nga-pse its use is universal. 

In investigating how the local markets were supplied with fish up to 1873, the replies 
from native officials gave the following results. In the Punjab one in ten markets were 
sufficiently supplied, in the North-West Provinces one in three, in Oudh one in four. In 
Bombay the amount was stated to be insufficient in all and the same reports came from 
Haiderabad, Mysor and Coorg. In Madras, near the sea, the quantity of fish was sufficient, 
but only in one out of the ten inland markets. In short merely one-tenth of the bazaars were 
reported as fully supplied with fish, and of these one-fifth obtained them from the sea-coast. 

The fishermen in several parts of India, more especially in the Madras Presidency, 
have customs of a patriarchal character, which are more strictly adhered to on the Coromandel 
than on the Western coast, but they appear to be falling into disuse. In Madras there are 
three classes of headmen, the superior or priestly, whose office is hereditary, and he exercises 
control over large tracts of country; the next is likewise hereditary, his jurisdiction being 
limited to a few towns and villages. Tihe lowest form is elective, and he is over one village or 

The sea-fishermen in olden times are stated to have been divided into two distinct classes 
(1) Those who captured fish in the sea beyond their own depth ; and (2) those who fished from 
the shore or in the backwaters, and were more immediately concerned in fish-curing and fish- 
vending. Kemains of these two classes are still existing in Ganjam and elsewhere, but 
generally the deep-sea fishermen have taken to the cheaper mode of plying their occupation 
close in-shore. 

The condition of the sea fishermen in Sind about ten years since, when investigations were 
made, showed that they were fairly well off; miserably poor in Bombay, except in the vicinity 
of large towns ; in a prosperous condition from South Canara down the Western coast of the 
Madras Presidency, but once round Cape Comorin they again appeared as a poverty-stricken 
race of people, and continued so up the Coromandel coast, except when residing near large 
centres of population. 

The sea-board of India and Burmah extends for about 4,611 English miles, and the seas 



are much more abundantly stocked with fish than are those of Europe, consequently it appears 
strange why the majority of the sea-fishermen should be badly off, considering the almost 
unlimited inland market for fish which exists. A long investigation led to the conclusion 
that the fisheries were in a depressed condition wherever salt was expensive or the employment 
of untaxed salt-earth prohibited, as in Bombay, along the Coromandel coast of Madras and the 
Bay of Bengal. That they were flourishing where salt was cheap or the use of untaxed salt- 
earth permitted, as in Sind, the Western coast of Madras and Burma. That where untaxed 
salt-earth could be obtained the superior quality of salt was rarely purchased for fish curing. 
That (with the exception of Sind and Burma) where the use of salt-earth was prohibited, the 
fish-curer had to dry his fish in the sun, or purchase monopoly salt, while the sole way to keep 
down the cost of this latter description of cured fish was to pay the very lowest possible price 
for the fishermen's captures and employ a minimum amount of salt. 

Prior to considering the incidence of the salt tax upon the fish curers' and fishermen's trade, 
I would draw attention to the following figures, which show, as far as returns are available, the 
amount of salted and dried fish exported by sea from Indian ports. The value is given in 
pounds sterling, calculating 1 rupee at 2 shillings.

The duty on salt in Sind has been 2s. a maund of 82f Ib. avoirdupois, sometimes less, 
during the entire period comprised in the above table. The first great increase in salting fish 
occurred in 1860-61, in which year the salt duty was raised in Bombay from 2s. to 2s. Qd. a 
maund. The next spurt of this trade in Sind was in 1864-65, when the salt duty was again 
raised in Bombay from 2s. 6d. to 3s. a maund. Possibly the importations into Bombay from 
Sind would subsequently have been more, but Government decided in 1867 to admit all salt 
fish from foreign ports, where no salt duty exists, into British India free of duty, to the immense 
advantage of the Portuguese settlements and the Meckran coast, but completing the ruin of 
Indo-British fishermen and fish-curers unless they were advantageously located. 

The following table from different districts on the west or Malabar coast of Madras shows 
the annual sale of Government or monopoly salt, along with the value of the salted and dried 
fish which were exported by sea :

The above table shows that the amount of annual exports of salt and dried fish in 
Western India had very little if any connection with the quantity of monopoly salt which was 
disposed of, the explanation being that the people were permitted to use the salt-earth in the 


preparation of fish as in accordance with a legal decision the natives were free to collect this 
salt-earth for their own consumption. Previously three maunds of fish required 4s. worth of 
monopoly salt for its cure, but 4c?. worth of salt-earth was found sufficient for this purpose. 
The article produced was inferior, but it was brought within the reach of the poor. It was 
proposed to impose a tax of a little more than 3s. 6d. a maund (E. 1 13 annas) on this salt- 

The salt tax in Madras in 1858-59 stood at 2s. a maund, but has been raised as follows : 
1859-60 to 2s. Qd., 1860-61 to 3s., 1864-65 to 3s. 4Jd, 1869-70 to 4s. 1875 to 6s., but it is now 
again reduced to 4s. But in Madras some facilities are now being given to the salting of fish. 

Fresh-water fisheries differ in many material respects from marine ones, and wherever any 
quantity of water is present in the East there we are almost certain to find fishes, and this from 
a sea-level to nearly the summit of the highest mountains. As a natural consequence fishing 
is carried on in rivers, irrigation canals, tanks, ditches, inundated fields and swamps. The 
fishermen of the fresh waters are divisible into two main classes ; first such as follow this 
calling as their sole means of livelihood, and secondly such as engage in it only occasionally 
and as a subsidiary occupation. Of the first class, even within the limits of a single or at least 
of a few generations, great innovations have crept in, for in the time of native rule fishing was 
in the hands of distinct castes, but now it is only here and there that one comes across some 
remnant of these people, who still restrict their means of livelihood to this industry. Britisli 
rule in most places has given up taxes on fishermen, and in many districts fishing rents as well 
consequently there are few large contractors who are lessees for lengthened periods of such 
properties, and it is no one's business to prevent undue depletion of fisheries. In some districts 
the fisheries, or a portion of them, are declared free, but a licence tax is imposed on fishermen. 
Or the general public may take fish for home consumption, but not for sale. Or liberty is given 
for everyone to help himself as he likes, where he likes, and when he pleases. 

At first the public, pleased at the remission of rents and the removal of restrictions, 
employ redoubled energy, and thus augment their immediate profits, the markets become 
glutted, but soon the price declines. After two or three years fish become scarcer, fishing is no 
longer remunerative, and the misapplied energy eventuates in nothing but small fish remaining 

Among the artificial causes deleteriously affecting fisheries in many districts are irrigation 
works, which are formed by throwing a weir across a river and diverting a large amount of 
water down a main irrigation canal. Fish migrating down rivers pass into these canals 
where considerable falls exist, but they can never reascend to the river. Thus these canals 
become enormous fish-traps, wherein all the finny tribes are destroyed whenever the canals 
are run dry in order to see what annual repairs are required. Similarly all fish passing into 
the side channels, which are generally flooded every alternate week, become killed, as no refuge 
tanks are in connection with these canals. Sometimes irrigation is carried on by means of 
diverting entire rivers into paddy fields, in which case all the fry they contain perish. 

As soon as young fish are moving about, or shortly after the monsoons have set in, men, 
women and children obtain myriads of fry from paddy fields and every sheltered spot to which 
they have retired for shelter and security. Nets which will not permit a mosquito to pass are 
employed ; the sides of rivers are denuded of fish so far as human agency can contrive it. 
The agricultural population construct wickerwork traps, baskets and nets, first placed so as to 
entrap the breeding fishes ascending to their spawning grounds, and subsequently reversed to 
take them descending to the river. Streams are absolutely strained to capture the fry, and 
every irrigation channel has its wickerwork trap. These devices are too numerous to describe. 

The minimum size of the mesh of the nets employed in fresh waters is exhibited in the 
following return :

large needle, a bodkin, quill, coarse muslin, will ensnare a gnat, or hardly anything will pass. 

The meshes of nets vary with the season of the year and the growth of the fish. Rivers 
are dammed and diverted for fishing ; waters are poisoned for this purpose, and many other 
plans are pursued which want of space will not permit me to enumerate.

(306) Dolphin of the Ganges. Platanista gangetica. This remarkable form of Cetacean, of 
which only one species is known, is peculiar to the Ganges, Bramaputra, and Indus, and 
is not found in the sea, being essentially fluviatile in its distribution. It ascends the 
foregoing rivers from their estuaries up to their exits from the Himalayan range, and it is 
widely distributed throughout them and their larger affluents. Its native names are sns, 
susu, 8unaar,sihoo, Mhoo, and bulhan. Platanista gangetica is occasionally accidentally caught 
in the nets of the fishermen. The flesh and blubber are eaten by some low caste Hindoos. 
The illuminating powers of the oil are said to be high. A very young specimen in alcohol,

The Otter of Lower Bengal. Lutra. This animal is widely distributed over Lower Bengal, 
and lives exclusively on fish, has a very voracious appetite, and is numerically abundant. 
Large number of fish are destroyed by it. When caught young, they are very docile, and 
follow their master like a dog. The fishermen in the Jeesore Sundarbans take advantage 
of this disposition, and train the otters to drive fish into their nets, the otter being 
rewarded with some fish, each time it is successful. These tamed otters have a collar

(See Plan, p. 158.) 

THE Dominion of Canada (extending over half the continent of America, washed by the waters 
of three great oceans, and having within its confines innumerable rivers and lakes), stands 
almost unrivalled in the extent and variety of its fisheries. 

What are generally known as the Maritime Provinces Quebec, Nova Scotia, New 
Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island have every description of sea-fishes ; whilst their rivers 
furnish an abundance of food-fish of great economic and commercial value, and oifer to the 
sportsman some of the best salmon and trout fishing in the world. 

The great inland province of Ontario, from her vast lakes and rivers, supplies to her own 
people, and for export to other countries, large quantities of valuable freshwater fish ; whilst 
the new province of Manitoba and the whole of the great North-West Territory have innumerable 
lakes and rivers teeming with choice food-fish, which are of great value to the settlers in that 
fertile region, while the rivers on the Pacific slope in British Columbia are literally full of 

In a new country, where the machinery for obtaining official statistics is as yet somewhat 
imperfect, it is difficult to estimate with accuracy the annual value of the fish taken ; besides 
almost every farmer and settler near the sea-coast, lake, or river, has a boat, net or other 
appliances for furnishing his household with fresh fish, no return of which is made to 
Government. The benefit of this great boon is especially felt by the settler, who often draws 
from the waters within sight of his new home supplies of rich fish for his family, even 
after his lands yield their rich harvests. The cash value of this widely-distributed privilege 
to the resident in Canada cannot be reached by the statistician, as his figures deal only with 
commercial transactions. The export of fresh fish is principally to the United States. 

Of cured sea-fish, codfish, mackerel, herring, &c., large quantities are annually shipped to 
the West Indies, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, and other countries. Lobster and salmon, of 
which about twenty million cans are packed, go mainly to the United States and Great Britain. 
The official returns show annually a steady increase in the value of the fisheries, In 1882 it 
reached the sum of $16,088,672. 

In some of the older sections of Canada, the former unrestricted fishing of streams, together 
with obstructions by mill-dams and otherwise, so resulted in their depletion that the Government 
took up the matter, enacted laws for the regulation of inland fishing, provided for the erection 
of suitable fish-ladders or passes in mill-dams, and have established eleven fish-breeding 
establishments for restocking and maintaining the supply in the rivers and lakes by artificial 
means. The extent of fish culture in Canada, under the superintendence of Samuel Wilmot, 
Esq., may be judged by the output of young fish in the last season, viz. : Salmon, 5,783,000; 
Salmon Trout, 2,277,000; Californian Salmon placed in Eastern waters, 471,000; Speckled 
Trout, 40,000 ; Percidae, 26,500,000 ; Whitefish, 20,728,000 ; Total, 55,799,000 

In this year's operations there have been placed in the hatcheries Salmon Eggs 6,612,000 ; 
Salmon Trout Eggs, 8,350,000 ; Speckled Trout Eggs, 200,000 ; Whitefish Eggs, 43,000,000 ; 
Total, 58,162,000 

To which may be added at the proper season twenty million of the Percidse family. The 
total distribution of young fish since the commencement of fish-hatching operations has been 
upwards of one hundred and seventy-five millions. 

Telegraph wires and cables have been laid to the principal fishing stations and harbouis 
on the sea-coast and adjacent islands ; and in addition to the ordinary signal service for all 
shipping, fishery bulletins are issued and immediate information given of the appearance of 
fish at any locality. The sea-coast, rivers, and lakes are well provided with lighthouses. The 
official returns of December 31, 1882, show 551 lights and 29 steam fog-whistles and automatic 
buoys. Seven Government steamers are employed in the lighthouse, buoy and fishery service. 

The Meteorological service is very extensive and efficient, giving weather predictions at 
all the principal ports. During the year 1882 six thousand five hundred and forty-five 
predictions were issued, ninety per cent, of which were fully or partly verified. 
[The Collection of Specimens from the Province of Prince Edward Island was un*

fortunately detained in the Government Steamer, Northern Light, from the 9th of January 
until tho 20fch of March, and was much injured by this delay, and cannot therefore bo 
exhibited in the condition in which it was shipped. The long voyage of the ship Latona, 
around Cape Horn, from Victoria, from the 19th of December until the 12th of May, with 
the British Columbia Specimens, has greatly injured also the exhibit of that distant 
Province of Canadn. 

With few exceptions the specimens from Canada are shown and owned by the Dominion 
Go vrernment.] 

In the centre of the Canadian Court is erected a large^Trophy, representing the Economic 
and Commercial products of the Fisheries of Canada. 

The form of the Trophy is circular, with a base of 24 feet diameter, and a superstructure of 
34 feet in height. The lower platform contains salted, cured, and pickled fish of various kinds 
as sent to the markets of the world. Pyramids of original packages and cans of Salmon, 
Lobsters, Mackerel and other fish, are here shown as put up for export trade from British 
Columbia and the Atlantic Provinces. Above these are suspended in circular form Smoked 
Salmon, Dried Cod, and other fish, with a larger circle above hung with native Lobsters in 
their natural and preserved state, surmounted again by more pyramids of canned goods, and 
mounted fishes. Following up the structure is seen a stuffed Beaver, the National Emblem 
of Canada, upon whose back rests the great Shield of Canada emblazoned with the insignia of 
the several Provinces of the Dominion, and encircled by another Emblem, the maple leaf of 
Canada. Projecting outwards from this are representative illustrations of fishing implements 
interwoven with nets, bunting, &c. Following upwards is the large Blue Banner with 
" Canada " upon it, and the cross fishes, on the summit is the Crown of England. 

There is also in the inner part of the Court a scientific trophy, containing illustrative 
specimens of marine mammals, fishes in alcohol, mollusca, and Crustacea.

THE population of the Bahamas by the census of 1881 was 44,000 about 10,000 whites, 
the remainder blacks and coloured. The majority of the population can handle a boat, are a 
hardy and an adventurous race, and face any dangers in saving life and property. 

The fishing-boats, numbering 100, and employing 500 men, are usually of the sloop rig, 
with a leg-of-mutton sail, and a well for keeping the fish alive. The sponging and wrecking 
vessels, numbering 500, employing 5000 men, are of schooner rig, fine models, and fast sailers. 
They are built by the Islanders, the timbers being of native hard wood (horse-flesh), the 
planking of yellow pine, from North Carolina, and vary in tonnage from 15 to 60 tons. The 
spongers ship on the share principle. The cost of the outfit is first deducted from the sale of 
the sponges, then the shipowner takes one-third, the crew two-thirds. 

Fish are caught with fish-pots, hand-lines and nets, the nets being taken out some 
distance from the land, and hauled slowly in to the shore, when a great variety, many of 
brilliant and variegated colours, is usually secured. It forms an important article of food, but 
none are exported, with the exception of turtle (Chelonia Mydas), and the hawksbill (Chelonia 
imbricata) yielding the tortoise-shell of commerce. 

The bait used in line-fishing is usually the conch. The fish are drummed up by 
striking two shells of the conch together, and are ground-baited as in English rivers. During 
the boisterous north-west winds, prevailing between November and February, they^ are 
difficult to catch, and are brought alive in the wells of the boats, and thus sold in the market- 
place. The estimated value of fish used in home consumption is 18,000 per annum, and of 
turtle exported 600 per annum. 

King, queen, and common conch-shells are exported in large quantities, being used for 
cameos, and in the latter is found the beautiful pale pink pearl now becoming so valued. The 
value of shells exported is 1200 per annum, and of pearls 3000 per annum. 

Ambergris is also found on these shores, and sea-cucumber (trepang). The value of 
ambergris exported is 1000 per annum. 

Corals and small shells, which are very beautiful, are largely collected, and find a ready 
sale among the American visitors, and in England. 

The value of the sponge exports for 1883 is estimated at 60,000. In 1882 it was 
59,033. From a report by the American Consul at Nassau I extract as follows : " That the 
sponge-trade gives employment to several thousands of persons and some hundreds of vessels, 
the sponges being divided into coarse and fine. The principal varieties, in the order of their 
value, are known as sheep-wool, white reef, abaco velvet, dark reef, boat, hardhead, grass, 
yellow, and glove ; and of some of these varieties there are several grades, designated by 
numbers, all being used for mechanical, surgical, and bathing purposes. Bahama and 
Florida sponges are about equal in texture and value, but both are inferior to those of 
the Mediterranean. The vessels employed in sponging are small, with crews of from six 
to twelve men. About six weeks' provisions are taken on board, and they then coast along 
the banks and reefs, where the water is shallow, and generally so clear that the sponges 
are readily seen, and are brought to the surface by hooked poles or sometimes by diving. 
When first brought up they are covered with a soft gelatinous substance as black as tar 
and full of organic life, the sponge as we know being only the skeleton of the organism. 
The day's catch is spread out on the deck so as to kill the mass of animal life, which, in 
dying, emits a most unpleasant smell. Then the spongers go ashore and build a pen or 
' crawl ' of stakes close to the water's edge, so that the action of the tide may wash away the 
black covering, in which it is aided by pounding the sponges with sticks. When this operation 
is completed the sponges are strung upon small palmetto strips, three or four to a strip, which 

160D Bahamas. 

is called ' a bead,' when they are taken to Nassau to be sold in the sponge-market under 
certain conditions and regulations, nobody being allowed to sell his cargo otherwise than 
through this sponge exchange. On the conclusion of the sale the sponges are taken to the 
packing-yard, where they are sorted, clipped, soaked in tubs of lime-water, and spread out to 
dry in the sun. They are then pressed by machinery into bales, containing 100 Ibs., and in 
this state are shipped to England or the United States, which of late years is almost the 
largest customer for Bahama sponges. The export has been gradually increasing, for whereas 
in 1874 it only represented $76,500, last year it amounted to $150,000, and the year before to 
$168,000. A new sponge-field was discovered last year at the island of Eleutheia, sixty miles 
from Nassau, extending over an area of many miles, and yielding the sheep-wool, the most 
valuable quality. Notwithstanding this fact, there have been two drawbacks to working this 
field, one being, though the sponges are of a very large size, they are exceedingly tender in 
the inner portions, and will not cut to advantage ; the other, that at certain times of the year 
myriads of small fish, known as * sailors,' arrive at the field and stir up the muddy bottom to 
such an extent that not a single sponge can be seen." 

The sheep-wool sponge brings quite as high a price in markets as the Turkish variety of 
the same. The success which is said to have been attained in the artificial propagation of the 
sponge by Professor Oscar Schmidt, of the University of Gratz, may lead to great development 
of this industry in the Bahamas. To the late Sir John Lees, father of the present popular 
Governor, the people owe a debt of gratitude for the discovery of the sponge. 

In consequence of the number of Islands, harbours are easily made during heavy weather, 
and sad cases of distress are of rare occurrence. 

Several friendly societies exist for mutual aid in time of sickness.

(See Plan, p. 140.) 


THE seas which surround the island contain an enormous quantity and variety of fish ; hardly 
any place in the world has been so richly endowed in this respect Tsy nature as Ceylon. 

A list of the commoner kinds of fish taken will be found in Tennent's Ceylon,' fifth 
edition, vol. L, pp. 205-232, and subsequent information on the subject will be found in Day's 
' Fishes of India ' (London, 1878), Blecker on ' Certain Varieties of Fish in Ceylon ' (Leyden 

Formerly all the fisheries were a Government monopoly, and in 1840, when the monopoly 
ceased, the value of the fish caught was 48,210. Since that date no statistics have been 
obtained, but it is probable that the present annual value of fish caught is at least 150,000, 
and it is rapidly increasing. 

A few shark fins are exported to India, and some beche-de-mer (Holothuria) to China, 
35 tons worth (1200) being sent last year. Except these the only fishery products sent from 
Ceylon to foreign markets arise from the two remaining Government monopolies, viz., the 
pearl fishery in the Gulf of Maunar, and the Chank (TurUnellapyrum) fishery off the north- 
western coast. 

The former, which occurs at irregular intervals, yielded to Government 50,000 from 
eighteen millions of oysters in 1881, and the latter gives a steady revenue of about 400 a 
year from a million shells worth, about 1000 ; nearly all are exported to India. Both these 
fisheries are performed by divers, and a description of them will be found in Tennent's 
' Ceylon,' vol. ii. In the same locality is found the dugong (Halicor dugong) a remarkable 
cetacean whose semi-human appearance gave rise to the myth of the mermaid. 

The Maldive Islands, under the protection of Ceylon, maintain a large fishing industry 
and yield considerable exports. Last year they exported to Ceylon 1600 tons of dried and 
salted fish, worth 27,000, and a considerable quantity of tortoiseshell and cowries. 
India also sent to Ceylon 2800 tons salt fish, worth 47,000. 

This salt fish is used all over Ceylon as a relish with curries by the natives, and the 
tortoiseshell from the Maldives and Singapore is worked by native artists into tasteful jewel- 
lery which finds a ready local sale. The cowries are exported to India, where they are used 
instead of small coinage. 

No ships of any size are used in the fisheries ; the boats in use are 
Bedlams, which are large logs burned or hollowed out. 

Canoes, which are logs hollowed or burned out, having an artificial superstructure 
attached, and an outrigger. 

Katamarans or rafts of logs tied together. 

All these are fitted with sails, but they seldom Carry more than five men. 
Pada boats are of larger size and consist of two hollowed-out logs united by a plank 
flooring, with a plank superstructure attached. These boats will carry large nets and as many 
as fifteen men. 

The number of boats used in the fisheries is not less than 6400 j their manufacture is 
peculiar, as they contain no nails, all the joints being strongly sewn together with fibre and 
well caulked. This fact long ago attracted the notice of the Arabian navigators, and forma 
the basis of one of the episodes in the story of " Sinbad the Sailor." The nets are often 
very large and costly, some being worth 150. 

The whole of the coast round Ceylon swarms with fish. Perhaps the most productive 
portion is the southern coast the south-western coast is the most assiduously fished, as the 
greatest population is found there. The thinly-populated coast on the north-east is fished 
annually by a fleet of boats which starts from Negombo, twenty-four miles north of Colombo, 
every year about April ; the fish caught are salted on the Wrest foreslvore, and the fleet 
brings them back in October. 

164 Ceylon. 

Dried and salted fish are universally consumed by all classes of natives all over Ceylon. 
Fresh fish find a ready market on the sea coast, but the want of means of quick transport 
inland confines their consumption to a distance of a day's journey from the coast. 

The number of fishermen returned in the census of 1881 was 19,930, besides 1927 fish- 
mongers and 334 workers of tortoiseshell. 

The fishmongers are many of them hawkers who buy the fish in market as soon as the 
boats come ashore, and convey it inland for sale. 

When all the fisheries were a Government monopoly (1796-1840) the Colonial Govern- 
ment used necessarily to take a more active part in their management and regulation than it 
does now. At present, with the exceptions already noticed, the fisheries are entirely free and 
untrammelled, but Government provides market buildings at all the important fishing ports. 

In 1866 the Government passed an Ordinance to prevent the wanton destruction of fish, 
and in 1872 another Ordinance (No. 23 empowering village communities to make rules for the 
local regulation of their fisheries, of which many villages have taken advantage. The 
Government still appoints certain headmen who exert considerable influence amongst the 

The fishing industry is almost entirely in the hands of a peculiar caste called in Sinhalese 
" Karawo," in Tamil " Karaiyar," or fisher caste, a considerable portion of which has joined the 
Eoman Catholic Church. These continue to devote to the Church the tithe of fish which they 
formerly rendered to Government. Caste feeling and the influence of their priests and headmen 
supplies the want which co-operative and benefit societies are designed 'to fulfil amongst 
Western peoples. The fishers are all closely related. Every large net or boat, and almost 
every garden near the sea, is owned by several owners in common shares, and where suitable 
fishing ground is small in area each net in the village is registered and drawn over it in its 
appointed turn. The fisher caste is by no means confined to its hereditary calling ; it now 
contains some of the wealthiest and most enterprising traders in the colony. 

The most pressing want at the present time is the establishment of large fish-curing 
industries at the most important centres ; these would in time not only render Ceylon inde- 
pendent of the import of dried fish, but place the colony in a position to export it, and thus 
give rise to a trade which would be of the utmost advantage. 

The prescribed limits of this paper preclude a detailed description of the contrivance?, 
often very extensive and ingenious, in use for the capture of fresh-water fish on the mainland, 
and for the same reason all attempt to describe the remarkable peculiarities and habits of some 
of the local species of fish has been omitted. Some of these will be found described in 
Tennent's* Ceylon.' J. A. SWETTENHAM. 


Model No. 9. Sinhalese, Karakgediya. Tamil, Karappu. A circular wickerwork coop, about 
3 feet in height and about 5 feet in circumference at the bottom ; the circumference 
diminishes towards the top, where it is only sufficiently large to admit a man's arm. It is 
used in shallow water, and principally at night. A torch, or chool light, is carried in a boat, 
while the coop is carried by a man wading in the water, who, when the fish, attracted by the 
bright light, come near, drops the coop down on them, and then withdraws them through the 
opening at the top. Model No. 10. Sinhalese, Iratiya. Tamil, Mm pidipei. This is a trap 
somewhat similar to the " Karakgediya," but with no opening at the taper end. At this end 
is a contrivance with a trap door, allowing easy entrance but difficult exit. It is fixed in 
the narrow channels where water is drained from one land to another. Model No. 11. 
Sinhalese, Kumbala Dela. Tamil, Kunibala Wali. This net is about 100 yards long and 
6 yards in depth. It is cast about four miles out at sea, to catch a species of fish called Kuniba-

lawa, about the size of herrings. Model No. 12. Sinhalese, Suda Dela. Tamil, Sudar Wali. 
This net is about 45 yards long and 6 yards in depth. It has a bag or noose at each of its 
four corners. It is taken by boat about 30 yards out to sea, whence two men swim ashore 
carrying each end of it. It is then hauled up on to the beach. Model No. 13. Sinhalese, 
Pulunnan Dela. Tamil, Chithippu Wali. This net is 125 yards long and 7 yards in depth. 
Model No. 14. Sinhalese, Athanguwa. Tamil, Pari. A species of landing-net. Used also 
for catching prawns in the mud of lakes. Model No. 18. Sinhalese, Wisidel. Tamil, Wisi 
wali. This net is 3 yards in depth and about 6 yards in circumference at its mouth. One 
end tapers to a point and has a long string attached to it. The other end or mouth is heavily 
weighted with lead, so that when thrown on the water it falls on the surface in a circular 
form, and while sinking to the bed of the stream or lake, encircles any fish that may be within 
its area. The string at the top end of the net then being pulled, the weights are gradually 
drawn together and the fish enclosed. 


Model No. 1. Sinhalese, Weladan Oruwa. Tamil, Yawara Thoni. About 20 feet in length 
Principally used, as its name signifies, for trading purposes. Model No. 2. Sinhalese, 
Warakan Oruwa. Tamil, Kachchana Thoni. A fishing-boat, mostly used during the north- 
east monsoon, from which it derives its name. Kequires a crew of four men, and fishes with 
hook and line from between twenty to forty miles out at sea. Model No. 3. Sinhalese, 
Hinguran Oruwa. Tamil, Hinguran Thoni. This boat gets its name from the species of 
small fish generally used on board it for bait. It carries a crew of seven fishermen, and fishes 
with hook and line from five to ten miles out to sea. Net No. 3 is used to catch the particular 
bait required ; it is 12 yards square. Model No. 4. Sinhalese, Issan Oruwa. Tamil, Iral 
Thoni. Fishes with hook and line, using prawns for bait, from which it has the name 
"prawn boat." Model No. 5. Sinhalese, Laggan Oruwa. Tamil, Surruku Wali Thoni. 
Fishes with net (No. 5) of about 20 yards long and 40 yards in circumference at its mouth. 
It carries a crew of five men, and catches large shoals of fish not unlike sardines or pilchards. 
Model No. 6. Sinhalese, Kattu del Oruwa. Tamil, Kattu Wali Thoni. Is used for fresh- 
water fishing only. Derives its name from the net it carries, viz., stake-net (No. 6), so called 
from the manner in which it is fastened in the current of a stream. The net is in the shape of 
a bag, 25 yards long, and with a mouth 4 yards in diameter. The mouth is fixed to eight 
stakes, placed in the bed of a stream in a semicircular form, at a distance of 1^ feet apart. 
Fishing with this net is generally carried on at night by torchlight. Model No. 7. Sinhalese, 
Kakuluwan Oruwa. Tamil, Nandu Thoni. This boat is six feet long, and is principally 
used for crab and prawn fishing in salt-water lakes. Baited lines are attached to long poles 
placed upright in the mud. When it appears from the line that a crab has caught hold of the 
bait, the boat comes near, and the line is gently drawn towards a net called " Athanguwa " 
(No. 14), into which the crab is shaken. Model No. 8. Sinhalese, Modduwa Oruwa. Tamil, 
Koduwa Thoni. Derives its name from a species of large fish called " Modda. 1 ' It is caught 
with hook and line, but on account of its weight requires to be taken on board in the net 
"Athanguwa," No. 14. Model No. 15. Sinhalese, Kattumaran. Tamil, ditto. This is a 
common description of raft ; it is made of three or four logs of wood, about 6 feet in length and 
2 feet in circumference, kept together by pieces of wood run through them in three places, with 
the ends of each piece projecting at either side. Hopes made fast to these ends, passed over 
from side to side of the raft, keep the logs firmly fixed together. The net (No. 1 5) used by 
this craft is about 30 yards long and 6 yards in depth, and is usually cast not more than three 
miles out at sea. Model No. 16. Sinhalese Madel paruwa. Tamil, Kawali pathei. This is a 
flat bottomed boat, plied with oars and poles. It derives its name from the Madel net which it 
carries. This net is 600 yards in length and 20 yards in depth. In casting this net one end 
is firmly fixed on shore, while the other, after the net has been paid out from the boat iii a

FISHERIES as to their economic value depend on quality, supply, and demand. Where a want 
equals the catch of the finny tribe, an industry may be viewed as healthy, whether the 
supply be marketable and local, or whether which is another consideration, and one 
more to the point as regards this paper local consumption or industrial demand, or both, 
does not equal the catch, and as a consequence the surplus has to be and can be profitably 
sent to more distant markets where disposal will readily follow. In the latter case so much 
would naturally depend on the available means and effective conveniences of transport, 
especially as to the disposition of fresh fish, or the effectiveness of curing where climate 
and circumstances put beyond consideration the transit of fresh fish. As a rule, it may bo 
said of the tropics that fresh fish to be enjoyed must be consumed on the day of the catch. 
It does not always admit, indeed, of this and the surplus captures, if energy prove sufficient 
for such an issue, are cured and sent to inland markets that offer. 

My remarks are meant to apply to the Gold Coast Colony, where the people may bo 
described as a fish-eating population, and where caste prejudices do not exist. Fetish 
restrictions may be at times, but rarely, imposed on the catch or consumption of this article 
of diet, but charity begins at home even with the Fetishman who is often a fisherman, 
and, when not, is the recipient of ''dashes" from the sea in the shape of fish by the pro- 
pitiators of the sea-god ; thus he would not be so shortsighted as to impose any restrictions 
on so needful and essential a commodity, especially when he would know that, were he so, 
his power of imposing obedience might be jeopardized by seafarers. 

In a country where local demand keeps pace with the population, and where the cost of 
fishing gear is comparatively, trivial when it is remembered that the value of time is not 
yet known so that the estimate of labour in the computation of outlay on appliances is not 
of much moment, the question of supply may be said to be favourably met; whereas as to 
the demand the sale-market is large and wide enough, representing, as it does, a huge 
interior, but a clammy and damp, at the same time hot climate, bad roads, no other means 
of transport 1 but in baskets on the heads of natives, imperfect system of curing, stand forth 
as obstacles, and indeed great ones, towards the development and growth of a healthy 
inland fish traffic. 

Philanthropic and scientific expeditions undertaken at various times in the past point to 
the fertility of the Eastern Atlantic as a fish-bed, but it is evident that sufficient advantage, 
compared with the fruit to have been reaped, has not been taken of nature's bounty ; and 
as regards West Africa, a comparatively new and scientifically unknown region, other 
mercantile and more popular attractions and manias have caused" the fish industry to be 
now what it was a hundred years ago, aye more ab initio the primitive calling and promotion 
of the aborigines in whose hands it has been and is, but towards whom more interest of a 
practical nature should have been, and it is to be hoped will be, directed in the matter, at 
least, of the improvement of the system of catch and healthy supply. 

No approximate value of the fisheries can be given. Data are not forthcoming. The 
population of the Gold Coast cannot, it would seem, be got within the range of "practical 
statistics." It will be ideal to state that most of the people, estimated in round numbers 
say at 400,000, live chiefly on fish, so that some conception can be formed of the consider- 
able catch there must be annually to supply such a mass, as also the great unlimited interior 
markets beyond our jurisdiction. 

The Gold Coast Colony prior to the following date made up of the settlements on the 
Gold Coast and the settlement of Lagos comprises, according to Letters Patent of 22nd 
January, 1883, all places, settlements, and territories belonging to Her Majesty the Queen, 
in West Africa, between the 5th degree of W. Long, and the 5th degree of E. Long. 
It must not be understood that the colony is one and undivided, for a strip of coast and 
country commonly nown as the Dahomean sea-board and territory intervenes. 

The population of the Gold Coast has, as already stated, never yet got beyond an estimate. 
Lagos was, however, more favoured, for in 1881 the census effort there applied and gave 
its population as 75,270, of whom 5,695 were returned as fishermen.

There has been no exportation of fish naturally. Imported fish, which is brought mainly 
from the United Kingdom, Germany, and America, is chiefly represented by tinned and 
smoked salmon, lobster, sardines, salt cod and ling, red herrings, and mackerel; and is 
supplied to meet the taste of Europeans and Europeanized natives. The aborigines, as a 
rule, prefer their own fish. 

The fishing craft of the colony is represented altogether by the canoe, " the dug-out," of 
varying sizes, regulated by the number of persons carried, viz. from 5 to 1. Canoes most 
frequently used are those for three persons ; they are propelled by paddles, the shapes of 
which vary tribally, the occupant (or occupants) resting on his knees, on his haunches, or 
standing erect. 

Sea fishermen usually pursue their avocations in the day; they rarely work at night; 
but to this rule there are exceptions, while in the lagoons freshwater fishing is conducted 
at times both day and night. 

Edible oysters are found both in beds, on the rocks running out into the sea, which are 
uncovered at low tide, and on trees (the mangrove). , 

The curing of shrimps and herrings forms a large industry, and represents a considerable 
trade within the colony* and beyond its border. 

The people suifer much from cutaneous diseases and uloerations which are attributed to 
the condition of the fish diet on which they, as a rule, have to depend. The primitive 
and defective system of curing must lose after a time its efficacy, and thus deleterious 
effects have been traced to imperfect or bad curing of fish, such as herrings, which the 
natives of the Gold Coast Colony principally consume. 

The following general nomenclature, taken from blue books and other records,' is given of 
(1) the fish, (2) Crustacea, and (3) molluscs caught : 

(1) Albicore, bonito, barracouta, bream, catfish, flying-fish, " grouper," herring, "jo," mullet, 
mackerel, " shinenoze," skate, snapper, sole, sword-fish, sprat, turbot, whitebait, electric fish. 

(2) Shrimps, crabs, lobsters. 

(3) Oysters, mud, rock, and mangrove. 

Different species of sharks abound. The manatee is also plentiful. 

Operations for the capture of the different forms of marine and freshwater life are con- 
ducted as a general rule by canoes, and effected by the following means Miniature 
models of the fishing gear, collected and presented by the writer, are to be found in the 
"Western Gallery of the Exhibition. 

1. Fish traps, bamboo baskets. 

2. Drag nets of pine apple or other fibre. 

3. Hand nets of pine apple or other fibre. 

4. Shrimp baskets of split bamboo. 

5. Shrimp or freshwater shell fish net. 

6. Matting or bamboo grating for encircling shallow ground and for entrapping fish. 

7. Manatus trap. 

8. Kroo canoe, for one. 

9. Hand nets corresponding with our" landing nets. 
10. Native fishing pot. 

12. Native water scoop for baling purposes. 

13. Native-made (of fibre) fishing line. 

14. Whips made of the skin of the manatus. 

15. Hand trawl net. 

The introductory object of this memorandum and want of space and time will not permit 
me to dwell here at further length on a subject of such interest and importance generally, 
but particularly so to the natives of the West Coast of Africa.

(See Plan, p. 76.) 
THE fislring industry of Heligoland is carried on by a fleet of open boats which consist of : 






Draft of 














(Model in Ex- 
\ hibition. 

Rudder Boats . . 







Middle Boats .. 







Lobster Boata .. 







All these boats are built entirely of oak, and are flat-bottomed, to enable them to be 
beached, and are sailed with lee boards. 

Big. The sloops are rigged with sprit sail and fore sail, with two jibs ; as they carry 
no bowsprit, a spar is used temporarily for setting the jib, and when running free this spar is 
rigged out on the biam with the jib set on it. They all carry eight days' provisions and water, 
two anchors, a hemp cable, and from 7 to 9 cwt. of stone ballast. In case of the weather 
being too bad for them to get back, they anchor, take the mast down, and thus ride out the 
heaviest gale, one man constantly baling. The other boats are all rigged with standing lug. 

Gear. The fish is caught entirely by line ; every sloop carries from 15 to 22 lines, each 
of 40 fathoms with 40 hooks. The lines are shot across the stream ; the first line is secured 
to an anchor, which is buoyed ; the boat then stands across,' veering the lines as she goes, 
each line being bent to the next, and each line having a small anchor to take it to the bottom, 
and keep it there. When the end of the last line is nearly out, the boat anchors, and after 
a time weighs and works towards the buoy, hauling the lines in as she goes. The bait is usually 
sand eels, which are principally got on " Sandy Island," three-quarters of a mile from the main 
island of Heligoland. 

Formerly the fishing fleet consisted of nearly a hundred sloops, but by constant losses through 
gales it has dwindled down to the present number, of which but 27 are now fit for sea. 

Seasons. There are two fishing seasons, from March to the end of June, and from October 
to about January, i e. when the weather necessitates the hauling up of the boats. The fish 
caught is almost entirely haddock, with a few cod and an occasional turbot. 

Winter. In the winter the fishing is carried on in company. The fish is brought to 
the island and delivered to an agent, who has it cleaned and packed, to be forwarded by 
steamers, which are sent over on receipt of telegrams by the contractor on the continent. This 
autumn fishing for the last five years has yielded an average of 171,000. The highest year 
was 1880, with 368,700 haddock and 1,266 cod; the lowest 1881, with 58,300 haddock and 154 
cod, calculated at seven score the hundred, the average price paid by the contractor during 
the above period being 1 3s. per hundred (140) haddock and cod Is. each. 

Spring Fishing. In spring the boats generally take their own fish to such markets on 
the opposite coasts, often from the fishing grounds themselves ; it is therefore very difficult to 
arrive at a correct calculation of the season's catch, as well as to estimate the total sum 
realized, no data having been kept. Prices, however, I find vary from 15. to 3 10s. per 
seven score. 

Summer. In summer there is little or no fishing carried on beyond what is needed to 
supply the wants of the restaurants, &c., most of the fishermen being employed in the ferry 
which takes the visitors over to bathe at Sandy Island, and in boating along with the guests. 

Lobsters. From 20,000 to 30,000 lobsters are collected annually on our rocks, the close 
season being from the 13th June to the 13th September. These are stored in lobster boxes 

Heligoland. 169 

containing often as many as 200 each, the fish being either for local use, or are sent to the 
Continent, where Heligoland lobsters are greatly prized. It is estimated that to obtain these 
results 4000 lobster pots (model to be seen with sloop) are in use, value about 4s. each. The 
heavy gales to which we are so subject do great injury to these pots, so that the occupation is 
not so remunerative as it would seem. The average price realized for lobsters per Ib. is from 
lid. to Is. 6cZ. 

Oysters. The Heligoland Oyster Bank is let to a contractor ; it is fished from September 
to March by the sloops, aided by rudder boats, on a bank about three miles to the eastward of 
the island, dredges being used. It has yielded but 130,000 of late years, mainly owing to 
disagreements between the contractor and the fishermen. The price paid is 7 marks per 
thousand delivered to the contractor's agent in the island. 

Fishing grounds. The Haddock fishing grounds are from the N. through W. to S.E. of 
the island at from eight to forty miles from it. 

The Lobsters are caught on the reefs that extend N.S. and W. of the Main and Sandy 
Island to a distance of about four miles. 

Use of fish. The Heligolanders live almost entirely on fish, a meat meal being of rare 
occurrence. Fish is not used as manure, neither is it cured for export or for sale. 

Fishermen. By last census there were 307 returned as fishermen ; the entire population, 
however, could be almost included (out of the bathing season) in this category, as old men and 
children aid in preparing lines, &c., which are cleaned, carried, and baited by the women. 

Colonial Aid. No special action in aid of fishermen, on the part of the Colonial 
Government, is possible in the present impoverished state of its finances. 

Benefit Societies. When our fleet was nearly destroyed in 1878 a subscription was started 
in Germany in aid of the fishermen, which realized 1535 ; from this loans without interest 
were given to the sufferers. The balance with the interests thereon and the repayments as 
above amounts now to 840, which sum is allowed to accumulate till it reaches 1000, when 
it is to form the capital of an assurance fund or benefit society started at the same time to aid 
in repairing future disasters ; to it the fishermen contribute : 

Autumn fishing: for each 100 (7 score) of fish 1 M. = l shilling; 100 oysters 5 Pfennig, 
about \d. 

Spring fishing : each sloop, 15 shillings ; each rudder boat, 12 shillings ; each middle boat, 
8 shillings ; each lobster boat. 4 shillings. 

The amount subscribed up to date is 460 10s.; the amount spent in particular aid, 
452 10s. ; in hand, 8. 

Should the society dissolve, then the money is to be divided among the subscribers, with 
the exception of the capital of 1000, which is to remain for ever at interest for the benefit of 
old fishermen and their widows. 

Final Bemarks. Though the waters of the North Sea abound in fish, and often fleets 
of hundreds of English, German and Dutch smacks are in sight of the island, the Heligo- 
landers, though yielding to none as fishermen, cannot participate in the riches which God has 
brought to their door, for without a harbour they can but use vessels such as can be hauled up 
in bad weather, and therefore such as preclude them from going far to sea to earn their daily 
bread. T. O'BRIEN, Lieut.-Col,

THIS island is situated in the Caribbean Sea, and to the southward of the eastern extremity 
of Cuba, within N. latitude 17 40' and 18 30' ; it is 140 miles long, 50 in extreme breadth, and 
contains 4200 square miles. The population by the last census (1881) was 580,804, of which 
14,433 were whites. 

The waters of Jamaica abound in excellent fish, but its fisheries are not utilized to any 
extent. The best illustration of this fact is that the importation of cured fish amounts 
annually to 200,000, whilst the take of fresh fish at their doors is only 30,000 per annum. 

The Jamaica Institute, with'the view of developing these resources, and making the people 
more independent and self-supporting, and stimulating fish curing, are offering prizes for 
specimens. There is not much enterprise, however, shown at present, although the fisheries 
are capable of easy expansion. The number of boats and canoes employed is about 1000, and 
of men 3000. 

Turtles (Chelonia Mydas) are exported alive, and sun-dried, and tortoise-shell from the 
Chelonia inibricata. They are mostly caught at the Cayman Island and the Moraut and 
Pedro Cays. The exports of turtle amount to 1000 per annum, of tortoise-shell 2000 per 
annum. The latter is manufactured into ornaments and useful articles in the colony. 

The principal salt-water fishes are : The Calipevaor Jamaica Salmon, June fish attaining 
the large size of 200 to 304 Ibs., Hog-fish, Angel-fish, Dolphin, Porgee, Grouper, Sun-fish, 
Grunts, Croakers, and Drummers; all the three last deriving their names from the sounds 
they utter when caught ; Snappers, Silts, caught at 200 fathoms in depth ; King-fish, 
Barracouta, and many others which limited space will not admit of naming. Of fresh-water 
fish, the best are: Mountain Mullet, Crayfish, Silver Eel, Mud-fish, &c. ; and in brackish 
waters, Jew- fish and Calipeva. Fish are caught with lines, fish-pots, and the seine. The 
price varies from IJd. to 6d. per pound. Reference is suggested to the Handbook of Jamaica, 
and an interesting paper thereon by Anthony Musgrave, Junr. 

Most of the Jamaica fishes are represented in preserved form, either in alcohol or 
stuffed, grouped in various parts of the Court. The entire collection has been loaned by the 
Jamaica Institute. A. J. ADDERLEY.

(See Plan, p. 176.) 

THIS island is situated between the parallels of 46 and 50 north latitude and the meridians of 
52 and 59 west longitude, at the mouth of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and has an area of 42,000 
square miles, with a coast line of over 2000 miles. 

It has also belonging to it the Labrador territory, with a coast line of nearly 1000 miles. 

Newfoundland is the oldest colony of Great Britain, having been discovered in 1497; it is 
also the nearest to the United Kingdom, being but 1640 miles from the Irish coast. 

Along all these coasts are the celebrated fishing grounds to which the fishermen resort in 
pursuit of their avocations. 

The island has besides very valuable and extensive mineral resources, which have but 
recently been brought to light, but which promise to become an important source of industry 
and wealth. The principal of these are copper and lead ; and when the country is opened up, 
by means of tlie railway now in course of construction, it is the opinion of the best scientists, 
that Newfoundland will take a leading place among the mineral countries of the world. 


The principal commercial fishes taken from the waters around Newfoundland and 
Labrador are the Cod, the Seal, the Herring, the Salmon, and the Lobster. The quantities of 
other fish taken are too small to render them of commercial importance. 

THE COD FISHERY is by far the most important, its products averaging in value three- 
fourths of the entire returns of the fisheries. 

The following statement shows the values of the cod-fishery products for the years 
named: 1880, exported, $5,309,481, consumed in the colony, $408,000; 1881, exported. 
$5,542,576, consumed in the colony, $384,000 ; 1882, exported, $5,978,668, consumed in the 
colony, $480,000. Total exported, $16,830,728; Total consumed in the colony, $1,272,000. 
Total value in three years $18,102,728 or 3,771,402 sterling. Average annual value of the 
products of the cod fishery for the last three years $6,034,242 or 1,257,134 sterling. 

The following statement shows the value of the codfish taken by the French on that portion 
of the Newfoundland coast over which their fishing privileges extend, and is exclusive of their 
bank fisheries: 1880, $250,920; 1881, 342,588; 1882, 244,800. Total, $838,308. Average 
annual value, $279,436 or 58,216 sterling. The products of the cod fishery above referred to, 
include the dried codfish exported, the common cod oil, the refined sod-liver oil, the roes 
exported for bait in the Sardine Fishery, and the dregs. The cod oil is chiefly exported 
to Britain, where it is found peculiarly valuable in dressing leather. The refined cod-liver oil 
is used for medicinal purposes. 

The following statement shows the quantities and value of these products respectively, for 
the years named: 1880, Dried Codfish, 1,419,503 quintals (112 Ibs.), $4,826,317; Cod Oil, 
4,483 tuns, $448,300 ; Refined Cod Liver Oil, 172 tuns, $30,960. 1881, Dried Codfish, 1,583,132 
quintals, $5,066,022; Cod Oil, 4,127 tuns, $445,716 ; Refined Cod Liver Oil, 144 tuns, $25,920. 
1882, Dried Codfish, 1,463,439 quintals, $5,853,756 ; Cod Oil, 4,254 tuns, $493,464 ; Refined 
Cod Liver Oil, 147 tuns, $28,224. 

SEAL FISHERY. The Seals are taken by the crews of steamers and sailing vessels on the 
ice fields off the north-east coast of the island, and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, during the 
months of March and April. 

The following statement shows the number of Seals taken and their value, in the years 
named: 1877,. 451,678, $1,116,360; 1878, 409,658, $1,006,568; 1881, 447,903, $957,760. 
Total number of Seals, 1,309,239. Total value, $3,080,688, or 641,810 sterling. Average 
number of Seals taken in three years, 436,413. Average annual value of Seals taken in three 
years, $1,026,896, or 213,937 sterling. 

172 Newfoundland. 

The products of the Seal Fishery include the Skins and Oil. The former are exported in 
a salted state to Britain, where they are tanned or used by furriers. The Seal Oil, extracted by 
steam process, is sent to Britain, where it is largely used in coal mines for illumination, also in 
lighthouses. It is also used in the manufacture of the finer kinds of soap and candles. 

The following statement shows their respective quantities and values in the years named : 
1877, Seal Skins, 451,678, $361,342 ; Seal Oil, 6,081 tuns, $754,044. 1878, Seal Skins, 409,658, 
$286,760; Seal Oil, 5,992 tuns, $719,040. 1881, Seal Skins, 447,903, $403,112; Seal Oil, 
4,773 tuns, $553,668. 

HERRING FISHERY. Herrings are taken all round the Island at certain seasons, but the 
chief centres of the Herring 'Fishery are Labrador, Bonne Bay, Bay of Islands, .St. George's 
Bay, and Fortune Bay. 

Statement showing the value of Herrings exported in the years named: 1880, $226,946; 
1881, $269,556 ; 1882, $228,128. Total, $724,630. Average annual value of Herrings exported 
in three years, $241,543. Average annual value of Herrings taken by the Newfoundland 
fishermen, and sold to the French and Americans as bait or for food, $100,000. Average 
annual value of Herrings consumed in the Colony $240,000. Average annual value of the 
Herring Fishery $581,543, or 121,155 sterling.

or 1,646,118 sterling. 

COUNTRIES TO WHICH THE FISH ARE EXPORTED. The countries to which the bulk of the 
dried Cod Fish is exported are the United Kingdom, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, the United 
States, Italy, Spanish and British West Indies, and the Dominion of Canada. The products 
of the Seal Fishery are sent almost exclusively to the United Kingdom. Lobsters are exported 
to Britain, and Herrings chiefly to Canada and the United States.

for the years named: 1880, $7,131,095; 1881, $7,648,574; 1882, $8,228,291. Average value 
of Exports for three years $7,669,320, or 1,597,775 sterling. 

In the foregoing Exports are included quantities of Copper Ore exported, the value of which 
was as follows : 1880, $510,900 ; 1881, $596,068 ; 1882, $382,020. Average annual value of 
Copper Ore exported in the three years $4^6,329, or 103,402 sterling. 

SHIPPING. The registered tonnage of the Colony at present is 1,895 vessels, having a 
tonnage of 89,655 tons ; of these 1,866 are sailing vessels and 29 are steamers. In addition, 
60 vessels were engaged in 1882 in the foreign carrying trade, which, though owned in 
Newfoundland, were registered in Britain. 

The number of sailing vessels entered at the various ports in 1882 was 1,306 ; their tonnage 
160,887 tons ; their crews numbered 7,840. The number of sailing vessels cleared at the various 
ports in 1882 was 1,107; their tonnage 143,720; their crews numbered 7,200. 

The number of steamers entered at the various ports in 1882 was 191 ; their tonnage 
150,107; their crews numbered 6,758. The number of steamers cleared at the various ports in 
1882 was 176 ; their tonnage 147,784 ; their crews numbered 6,568. 

NUMBER OP FISHERMEN. According to the census of 1874 there were 45,845 persons 
employed in fishing and curing fish. In 1883 there are about 52,550 thus employed, allowing 
for the increase of the population. The number of able-bodied fishermen in the Colony in 1874 
was 26,377 ; there are now about 30,238. 

A bounty of three dollars per ton is granted to all vessels over fifteen tons built in the 

Newfoundland. . 173 

Fishermen have a first lien on the products of each season's fishing operations for wages 
or shares.

THE following introductory remarks are taken from the special catalogue of the New South 
Wales Exhibits : 

" The greater portion of the exhibits in the N. S. Wales Court have been liberally supplied 
by the Trustees of the Australian Museum, at the request of the Commissioners N. S. Wales 
Fisheries, having been specially prepared by the skilled taxidermists of that institution, the 
Commissioners themselves undertaking, through their energetic Secretary, Mr. Lindsay 
Thomson, the preserving of the tinned fish and oysters, and procuring from the various beds 
the large and interesting collection of Oysters displayed in the Court, as well as the fishing- 
boat, nets, and lines, the fish-oils, the photographs and oil paintings of the food-fishes, with 
many other interesting articles mentioned in the Catalogue. 

" The notes appended to each of the different samples of oysters have been collated from the 
reports sent with each to the Commissioners by the Inspectors and Sub-inspectors of the various 
leased beds in the colony of New South Wales. 

" One of the most marked features in the fish-fauna of the Australian Seas is the almost 
entire absence of the Cod tribe (Gaddidee), a family among which the Codfish itself, the Ling, 
the Haddock, the English Whiting, the Hake, &c., supply such immense quantities of valuable 
food, and afford so much employment to thousands of human beings in the Old and New 
Worlds. This want is, howevei:, amply supplied by members of other families, such as the 
Mugillidso, Sciamidso, and Carangidcc, which visit the Australian shores in vast shoals. From 
among these, fisheries might be formed, which, if carried on under efficient management, 
experience, and skill, with a comparatively small expenditure would in the future bid fair to 
rival the largest and most important in the world. Unfortunately there are at present no 
fish-curing or canning establishments in New South Wales. 

* With the exception of one species, Retropinna richardsonii, Gill, a species not used for 
food, the Salmonidse are naturally absent, but this family has been so successfully introduced 
into the Tasmanian water?, that it is highly probable, ere long, even Salmon will form an 
important article of export. 

With regard to the Clupeidsc (the Herrings, Pilchards, Sprats, and Anchovies), the species 
of this family arc very numerous, and occur in quite as large shoals as in any other part of the 

" When the MugillidsD, the most valuable for canning purposes, but which only occur at a 
certain season of the year, are gone, there are many other families the members of which are 
also found in immense quantities, for instance, the SciamidiB : Scixna antarctica and Otolithus 
atelodm ; the Sparida) : Cltrysophrys australis, C. sarba, Girella tricuspidata, G. simplex, and 
Pagrus unicolor : the Carangidoo : Seriola lalandii, S. gigas, S. grandis, Temnodon solicitor : 
the Scombresocida) : Hemirhamphus inter medius and If. regularis; the Scombrida), which 
include the Mackerels : Scomber australasicus, S. colias Thynnus pclamys ; the Traohinidju : 
Sillago ciliata, S. maculata, S. bassensis all of which occur at various seasons of the year, and, 
being obtainable in large quantities, would afford lucrative employment to hundreds of men, 
women, and children, and food for thousands. 

" Moreover, with more experience and knowledge of the proper trawling-grounds, still 
further sources of supply will arise. 

" At present, a great difficulty is the proper preservation of fish after their capture for 
transit inland and elsewhere. This arises from the heat of the climate, the scarcity of ice, and 
the want of efficiently constructed and swift boats for transit. Doubtless such wants will in 
due course be remedied, as the demand for fish-food is daily on the increase. 

South Wales. 176c 

" The fishing industry as yet may be regarded as in its infancy. This is shown by the fact 
that the only nets in general use by the fishermen are the ordinary trawling seines and mashing 
nets, while there is only one style of boat, a model of which is exhibited in the Court. 

" It may not be out of place here to draw attention to some of the principal features of the 
New South Wales Court, among which may be enumerated the large Sunfish, Orthagoriscus, 
sp., the Luth, Dermatochelys coriaceus, the group of Pe'ron's Seals, Otaria cinerea, exhibited 
for the first time in England and Europe, the large collection of food-fishes, stuifed . and in 
spirits. The Sponges and Oysters deserve attention, while the walls are decorated by life- 
sized oil-paintings of fishes and large photographs of the fish-markets and certain of the 
Government offices and other magnificent buildings, highly creditable to Mr. James Baruet, 
the colonial architect." 

New South Wales exhibits chiefly a large collection of the Fishes of the Colony preserved in 
spirits. These are all food fishes, and such as from time to time at various seasons of the year 
find their way to the fish markets. The number of species exceeds 150 kinds, and are repre- 
sented by 300 specimens. The freshwater species, such as the Murray Cod, and various kinds 
of Perch and Bream, Herrings, &c., are well represented. A catalogue, now in preparation, and 
which will be ready for distribution in a few days, contains a detailed list of these fishes 
(see Special Catalogue of the New South Wales Court), and also notes on a fine Collection 
of Sponges from Port Jackson and the adjacent coast. A Collection of Echinodermata and 
Crustacea. Zoophytes, &c., and Polyzoa from the same localities. A group of Eared Seals, 
Arctocephalus cinereus, consisting of adults and young, is exhibited on the left of the entrance 
to the Court. Two well prepared specimens (male and female) of the Dugong, Halicore 
Australis, and oil and lard obtained from these strange animals, are also exhibited. In the 
side Cases are exhibited, besides the stuffed fish, a large collection of Oysters, of sixty varieties, 
from different leased beds in New South Wales. There is also a collection of other Edible 
Mollusca, such as the Turbo, Haliotis or Mutton Fish, Cardiums, &c., &c. The walls are 
decorated with oil-paintings of the principal food-fishes and numerous photographs of 
Australian "scenery and public buildings. Fish Oils are represented by the oils obtained 
from the Grey Mullet, and various species of Sharks and Rays, of which stuffed specimens 
are also exhibited. The collections are chiefly of a scientific nature, but the numerous 
kinds of fishes show that large fisheries are capable of being developed in the Australian 
waters, particularly of the Grey Mullets, Herrings, Schnapper, and the Murray Cod and 
Perch. Other exhibits, consisting of Preserved Fish of several kinds, and Oysters in tins, 
are exhibited on the eastern side of the Court. 

The so-called "Murray Cod" or "Macquarie Cod" (Oligorus macquariensis) is the largest 
of our freshwater fishes, sometimes weighing over 100 Ibs. When at a weight of from 3 Ibs. to 
10 Ibs. it is considered most marketable, and is without doubt a most delicious fish-. It 
abounds in most of the rivers north of Sydney and in those of the western watershed, as the 
Murray and Macquarie and their numerous tributaries, affording good sport for anglers and a 
valuable supply of food ; they are usually taken for market with the Trammel, or Bag-net, 
set across the stream, or by hook and line. They have also been introduced into several of 
the inland lakes nearer Sydney, such as Lake George. Lake Batlmrst, &c., where they thrive 
remarkably well, becoming immense fish and exceedingly fat. A large specimen, wnich weighed 
about 20 Ibs., is exhibited in front of case No. 3. 

Large quantities are daily, during the cold months, sent to the Melbourne and Adelaide 
markets from the Murray and its numerous tributaries ; the supply for the Sydney markets 
is obtained from Lake George and from the Macquarie River, but chiefly from the Murrum- 
bidgee, being forwarded by train from Wagga. 

Two species of Murray Cod are recognized by naturalists, the Oligorus macquariemis, Cuv. 
et Val., and Oligorus mitchelli, Castleneau. 

The next fishes of importance, all of which are considered great delicacies, are the Golden 
Perch, Ctenolates ambiguus (Dules auratus, Richardson), Ctn. chrysti, Cast., and Ctn. flavescens, 
Giinth. C. amliguus is found in considerable numbers in the Victorian fresh waters and at 
Wagga on the Murrumbidgee. C. /avesceras/equally plentiful, is, I believe, confined to the 
upper waters of the Macquarie, in New South Wales ; here we also have the Silver Perch 
(Therapon Richanlsoni, Cast.) and T. macleai/ana, Ramsay, in considerable numbers, although 

176D New South Wales. 

usually taken for the markets with the net, they afford good sport to the angler, from twenty to 
forty fine fish, weighing from to 6 Ibs. weight, may easily be secured by one person in a day's 
fishing within a few miles of the town of Wellington. 

Among other fishes equally good may be mentioned Therapon niger, Cast., Murray i. 
Gtintlieri, Cast., M. cyprinoides, Cast., M. bramoides, Cast., Riverina fluviatilis, Cast., Macquaria 
awtralasica, Cuv. et Yal., and others which occasionally find their way into the southern 

Lates colonornm of Gunthcr forms a palatable article of food ; it inhabits most of the rivers, 
lakes, and lagoons throughout the whole of Australia, but is replaced in the northern rivers by 
a much larger species known as Lates calcarifer, which is there more abundant. 

L. colonorum is not unfrequently taken with nets in the bays at the estuaries of the rivers, 
having been brought down the rivers by the "freshes" or floods, also by "set" nets in the 
rivers higher up the stream. When freshly cooked are among the best of our river-fishes. 
They spawn during August and September, the roes being considered a great delicacy. There 
are many other species, such as Lates ramsayi, MacLeay, Lates curtus, Cast., Mugil dobula, 
Gth., Mugil argenteus, Eels, Anguilla australis, the freshwater Herring, Meletta novtv-hollandiae, 
the Cat-fish, Copidoglanis tandanus, and a host of small fry which afford the anglers pleasant 
sport as well as a good dish. 

But the most important of our freshwater fishes are undoubtedly the two species of the 
Murray Cod (Oligorus), the Golden Perch (Ctenatales), 2 species, the Silver Perch, and the 
MacLeay 's Perch (Therapon), and the lUver Perch (Lates), 2 species, with the Eels (Anguilla'), 
of which there are also probably 2 species.

No attempt is made to give a list of the smaller kinds of fish. Their number is legion, 
and their colours often varied and very brilliant ; but the flesh is coarse. 

Of the larger kinds, the Grouper, the King Fish (Tazza), the Cavally (Carrengue grasse), 
the Black Jack (Carrengue noire), and the Barracouta, are considered the finest for the table. 
Among the smaller ones, the Butterfish is an excellent and delicate morsel. So is the Spanish 
Mackerel. Flying Fish and Jack Fi^h are good eating, and likewise the Bock Hind.

To these may be added the Hedgehog aud Eels ; and among Shell Fish, Sea Eggs, Oysters 
and Whelks. 

Turtle, of two species, are fairly plentiful. 

Whales, chiefly the Hump Backs, are pretty common from January to May, and are fished 
by Americans. 

Among freshwater fish, there is the Mullet, resembling the Trout in size and delicacy of 
flavour. Then come the Carmeau, the Brochet, the Vermine, the Endormeur, and the Sarde- 
dents-chien. One or two of these attain sometimes large proportions, the Carmeau, for example, 
reaching three or four feet, and weighing 30 Ibs., and the Sarde-dents-chien 60 Ibs. These are 
to be found in the deep pools near the mouths of the rivers. 

In these islands, " pickling" fish is not practised, and "corned " fish is the term used for 
the local fish when salted and dried. " Salt-fish : ' is the name given to the imported New- 
foundland Cod. The -drier kinds of fish, when corned, will sometimes last quite as long as the 
" Salt fish." 

The sizes and weights given in the catalogue express the largest dimensions known to the 
persons who have contributed to the information herein given, some of whom are practised 

Most of the deep sea fish are caught by the hook and line. Flying Fish are caught in 
net-bags attached to a stick, and dipped beside the boat. Cavallies, Jack Fish, and others arc 
taken in large seines, which are drawn upon sandy shores. Many of the smaller kinds are 
taken in fish-pots, weighted and sunk, sometimes in very deep water. The Mullet rises to the 
"fly," as the trout does, and the larger river-fish are sometimes shot. A common practice of 
the rustics is to dam a favourite portion of a stream, and throw into it pounded pepper or other 
leaves. The fish are stupefied and are easily taken. 

Fish is generally sold at Qd. per lb., taking a high proportion to beef, which brings Sd. 
The smaller fish sell at 3d. 

Castries, the capital of the island, has a 'population of about 5000 ; and about two dozen 
canoes, manned by two or three hands each, supply its daily wants. The poorer people con- 
sume a good deal of the smaller and cheaper kinds of fish, and are very fond of the common 

Flying Fish seems to be plentiful, and, if deep sailing boats were used as at Bardados, it 
is likely that the supply would be considerable and steady all the year round. Flying Fish 
pickles well, like herrings ; but Barbadians say that the effect of eating them pickled is that 
the human skin becomes spotted and stained. Hence pickled Flying Fish is avoided. 

Near Margarita and the Testigos Islands, to the Westward of Trinidad, immense quanti- 
ties of fish are caught and corned, and occasionally a cargo of it reaches these islands. But 
at present there is no export trade in fish from St. Lucia, nor is fish so abundant in its 
neighbourhood as to be ever likely to become an article "of export. There are no banks swarm- 
ing with fish, hence nothing can ever compete with the Newfoundland Cod. 

"Caveecht" Fish is a fine relish and stand-by (like pepper-pot) when well prepared. 
This can best be done by frying the solid and dry kinds of fish, then treating them witJi 
vinegar, olive oil, pepper and spices. Suitably packed in jars, Caveecht Fish lasts a long 
time, and is welcomed in England. 

There are no benefit societies among the St. Lucia fishermen, and the trade receives no 
special protection nor any pecuniary aid from the Government.

(See Plan, p. 140.) 

THE Colony under the above designation lies, roughly speaking, between 1 and 6 N, Lati- 
tude, and 100 and 104 E. Longitude. It consists of the islands of Singapore and Penang, 
and of three strips of territory on the mainland of the Malay Peninsula called Malacca (one 
of the three Settlements), Province Wellesley, and the Dindings. The seat of Government is 
the town of Singapore, and the form of administration is that found in Crown Colonies. 

The population of the Straits Settlements, according to the census of 1881, amounted to 
423,384, and was distributed as follows : 

Europeans. Malays. Chinese. Natives of India. 

Singapore ............... 2,769 ... 22,155 ... 86,766 ... 12,058 

Penang ..................... 612 ... 21,772 ... 45,135 ... 15,730 

Malacca .................. 40 ... 67,513 ... 19,741 ... 3,891 

Prov. Wellesley ......... 76 ... 58,723 ... 21,637 ... 10,616 

The Bindings ............ 2 ... 1,847 ... .466 ... 37 

Fish forms, with rice, the principal article of food among all the native races. This is 
especially the case as regards the Malays, while the Chinaman, if he can afford it, will 
supplement his meal of rice and fish with a small quantity of pork. To supply the various 
markets about 15,000 persons are wholly employed in fishing operations, and in addition 
numerous families meet their own requirements, which can be readily done, as the waters 
of the colony literally teem with fish. 

A considerable trade in salted fish is carried on in these Settlements. In 1882 Singapore 
received this commodity to the value of 317,000, and it exported the same article to the value 
of 320,000. The imports chiefly came from Siam (value last year, 140,000), French Cochin- 
China, East Coast of the Malay Peninsula, and Hong Kong. The exports principally went to 
Netherlands, India (value last year, 220,000), British Burmah, China, and Hong Kong. 
Burmah and the neighbouring states also took dried fish from Penang to the estimated value 
of 40,000. 

Fish-maws and sharks' -fins might in addition be included in this trade. The former are 
exported to the United Kingdom, 3000 worth being forwarded there in 1882 Netherlands, 
India, Australia, and China, and they are imported from Hong Kong, Netherlands, India, 
Cochin-China, and even from Arabia. In the Straits Settlements fish-maws are obtained 
almost entirely from three kinds of fish, locally known as Siakap, Kuran, and Timereh. Of 
sharks'-fins about as much is imported as exported, the above-mentioned countries being those 
which are principally interested in the trade. Last year the imports at Singapore were valued 
at 6500, and the exports at 7600. From Penang the exports were valued at 8200. 

The fishing class are, as a rule, well-to-do. The only taxes to which they are annually 
liable are as follows : for a license for a fishing boat, 25 cents ; for a license for an inshore 
fishing stake, 5 dollars ; for a license for an outshore fishing stake, 10 dollars. 

There is no regular season for fishing, but during the North-east Monsoon (November to 
March) the markets are less supplied, and prices rule high. The great bulk of the fish 
brought to the various ports is caught in drag-nets, and at stationary fishing stakes. 

It is estimated that about 20,000 tons of fish are annually disposed of in the town markets 
of Singapore, of which the value may be placed at about 470,000; while at Peuaug it is

calculated that the daily consumption in the markets of that settlement is about 18 tons, of 
the estimated value of about 450. The retail price varies from one cent to nine cents a 
catty (1$ Ib.) 

The exhibits in this Court show about 150 different kinds of fish ordinarily caught 
in the Straits, and include a few specimens of fresh-water fish found in the rivers of the 
Malay States. There are also exhibited models of the many implements and appliances 
employed in the capture of fish, and several articles actually used in fishing. The 
collection also contains models of fisherman's huts, and of the boats employed in fishing. 
There are, too, many samples of the kind of nets used in the various classes of fishing. 

A few specimens of corals, Crustacea and shells have been added. 

The Government of the Straits Settlements is much indebted to His Highness the 
Maharajah of Johore, and to the rulers of the Native States of Kedah, Perak, Selangor, and 
Sungei Ujong for the many interesting exhibits which bear their name. They readily 
accepted the invitation of the Governor (Sir F. A. Weld, K.C.M.G.) to make the collec- 
tion as complete as was possible in the limited time at disposal, and in this work the 
British Kesidents in the Protected Native States of Perak, Selangor and Sungei Ujong 
materially assisted.

[The stake nets, though differing in detail, are all much the same in principle, and a 
description of one, of which Model No. 3 may be taken as an example, will serve as a guide to 
all. The " Kaylong," No. 3, is a fixed engine, usually about 900 feet long, 24 feet wide, and 
30 feet high, jutting out into the sea at right angles to the shore. It is constructed of stakes 
and rattan, in four compartments, the fish entering the first at high or half tide, find their way, 
as the tide falls, into the last, whence they are removed at low water.]

(See Plan, p. 140.) 

THE following introductory remarks are taken from the special catalogue of the Tasmanian 
Exhibits : 

" It was not at first intended that this catalogue should be anything more than a bare list 
of the exhibits in the Tasmanian Court, entrusted to my care, but from the letters and 
communications received from the accomplished Secretary to the Commission, Philipp 
S. Seager, Esq., who has so carefully prepared the lists forwarded with the exhibits, I have 
gleaned such information as is made use of in the form of remarks on those forms which 
appear to me to be of special interest, deeming that this may not be unacceptable generally. 

" The fact of several species of Salmonidse having been so successfully introduced and 
established in Tasmanian waters is no less gratifying to pisciculturists here in England than 
it must be to the colonists themselves, who now enjoy good old English sport in fly-fishing. 
The future value of these introductions and additions to the fish food of Tasmania and her 
sister colonies cannot be too highly valued. 

" Experts are of opinion that many of the specimens now exhibited are crosses between 
Sdlmo fario and S. trutta some appear to have a strain of Salmo salar, others are undoubtedly 
S. trutta, and one or two may be said to be genuine specimens of S. fario. 

" At the Great International Exhibition of 1879-80, held in Sydney, the Tasmanian Com- 
mission exhibited several very large specimens of Salmo salar weighing over 20 Ibs. ; and during 
the Melbourne Exhibition of 1880-81 Salmonoids of from 2 Ibs. to 4 Ibs. each were retailed by 
the fishmongers in Melbourne at 10s. and 21s. apiece. 

"While we cannot but admire the talent and energy expended on the intricate and 
expensive machinery now employed in the American and English fish-hatcheries, it is pleasing 
to observe the primitive methods and simple contrivances by which the Salrnonidse were at first 
and so successfully introduced to Tasmania, The same success has attended the introduction 
of the Carp, Tench, and Kiver Perch. Kecently I have heard of a very laudable proposal 
(were it only needed) to introduce the Herring into Australian seas, but surely our southern 
friends are aware that numerous shoals of the very finest Herrings (Clupea sp.) in the world 
annually pass along our coasts, sometimes entering the mouths and estuaries of our rivers and 
bays : and in addition Tasmania can boast of her Sprats and Anchovies, which occur also on 
the southern shores of the mainland in such large shoals that they only require to be properly 
fished to become a source of wealth to the colonies. The Tasmanian Grey Mullets (Mucjilidx) 
are another family capable of affording, when cured, an important article of food either for 
home consumption or export. 

"Among the fishes will be found some remarkable forms, extremely interesting in a 
scientific point of view. The collection also contains all the principal food fishes, such as the 
Baracoota Thyrsites atun, and the King-fish Thyrsites solandri. Several species allied to the 
Trumpeter (Latris hecateia, Latris Forsteri, &c.), Chilodactylus Alporti, &c., and others. 
Samples of the "Black Fish" and "Bream," the Cyttus, "Boar Fish," " Trevally," Perch, 
Sprats, Herrings, Anchovies, and Grey Mullet, forming a well-chosen and representative 
collection of the Tasmanian fish fauna. 

" Photographs and Coloured Paintings of the most important have been added, also Photo- 
graphs of the City of Hobart and the environs thereof, and Forest and Native Scenery, with a 
very interesting series representing the Derwent Kiver and its Salmon Ponds, &c. 

"Lieutenant Bedome has contributed a very complete collection of the Mollusca of 
Tasmania, and among the fish-destroying Mammals may be seen a fine specimen of the Seal or 
Sea-Leopard, Stenorhynchus leptonyx, Grey. 

"Among the fish-eating Birds are specimens- of the " Mutton Bird," Piiffinus brcvicaudus, 
which is still found in immense numbers on some of the Islands in Bass's Straits, and supplies 
a large quantity of oil annually. 

" Among the Crustacea are some large and interesting species of edible Crayfish, both from 
the sea and fresh water, one species of which (Palinurus Edwardsii) already forms an article of 
export to New South Wales. This species attains a length from one foot to eighteen inches, and 
finds a ready sale at from Is. Gd. to 2s. Gd. each. The Tasmanian Freshwater species (Asta- 
copsis Franldinii) exceeds that of its representative on the mainland, but unfortunately has not 
found its way into the general market." 

Tasmania. 185 

Tasmania exhibits a fine collection of Shells, and specimens in alcohol of the principal 
Food Fishes. Models of their Fishing Boats, Nets, and Fish-destroying Birds, with Seals and 
other animals peculiar to the country ; also photographs and coloured paintings of Fishes 
peculiar to the coast.* 

The following particulars relative to the salmon fishing in this colony have been collated 
from the Keports of the Tasmanian Salmon Commissioners for the years 1879 and 1880. 

The Salmonidx, both migratory and non- migratory, continue to multiply so rapidly that, 
if their increase be not checked by the occurrence of some such epidemic as that which has 
recently proved so fatal in certain British rivers, the streams in Tasmania must, in the course 
of a very few years, be thoroughly stocked. 

Most of the streams on the north, south, and east coasts are already fairly stocked with 
the Salmo fario, and others contain the Salmo trutta ; but, at present, the Derwent and its 
tributaries are the only rivers in Tasmania in which the true Salmon is believed to be present. 
The Commissioners will endeavour to remedy this partial distribution of the Salmo salar at 
the earliest opportunity. 

For the last four years the Commissioners have had collected from the spawning beds in 
the Plenty certain large ova, of a pink colour, much resembling those of the Salmo salar 
originally received from England, some of which have been sent to the diiferent Colonies, and 
some have been placed in several of our own rivers. We think it more than probable that 
these Ova will prove to be of the Salmo salar ; but, if any should prove to be Salmo trutta, it 
is satisfactory to know that, in general estimation, these rank as little, if at all, inferior to the 

In October, 1879, as has been the case about that period for the last five years, Smolts, 
dressed in their beautiful bright migratory scales, came down the water-race which supplies 
the ponds, evidently making their way to the sea. Their numbers, however, on the last 
occasion were far greater than in any previous year, in fact they came down in millions ; and 
the rush continued for at least a fortnight. Many of them, notwithstanding the efforts of the 
Assistant to guide them into the Plenty, found their way into the |ponds; but their restlessness 
and anxiety to get to sea were such that they always immediately escaped when an oppor- 
tunity was afforded them. The Trout, on the contrary, which happened to be present, never 
showed any anxiety to leave the ponds. 

In October, 1880, as in former years, Smolts again made their appearance in the Eiver 
Plenty on their way to sea ; but in consequence of the diversion of the river by flood, the 
numbers which entered the shoots leading to the ponds were less than on former occasions. 
The Commissioners have caused some of these fish to be retained in a special pond, in the 
hope that they will deposit ova, and thus enable their progeny to be placed in other rivers of 
the Colony. Should the experiment prove successful there will be no difficulty in rapidly 
stocking other rivers with migratory salmonoids. 

It has been observed when captured migratory species are introduced into our breeding 
ponds and permanently retained there, that at first, during the migratory season, they make 
considerable effort to escape from their confinement. It has also been noticed that although 
they continue to present a healthy outward appearance, yet if the forced imprisonment is 
prolonged the generative organs are seriously affected, for they invariably become perfectly 
sterile. These observations may be of much interest to ichthyologists and to others interested 
in the natural history of introduced fishes. 

Several captures of Salmon, of from 4 to 7 Ibs. in weight, have been made by fishermen 
with nets ; and a fine specimen, upwards of 7 Ibs., was taken in Storm Bay, at a locality about 
twenty miles seaward of the mouth of the parent river, the Derwent. Fish (Salmonidae\ as 
to the exact variety of which various opinions have been entertained, of fully 20 Ibs., have 
been caught with rod and line. In addition to these, a fine specimen of Salmo fario, of 28 lbs. c 
was found dead in the Huon Kiver. 

The Commissioners still consider it uuadvisable to recommend any alteration in the 
existing restrictions as to netting in the Derwent, not only for the protection of the Salmonidev
